I built this myself over the last 7 weeks as part of an introductory woodworking class, once a week at a local school. I don't have a lathe at home, so I won't be turning any more drawer-pulls again any time soon, but I have most of the other tools we used, so I should be able to build similar projects in future.

By request, closeup details of the Shaker table, showing off just a few of its many flaws.

On the left: I turned the drawer pull on the lathe -- the turning blank was made (as were the legs) from two pieces of 1-inch stock laminated together, since they don't have any 2-inch stock (what can I say -- school budgets are tight). And if you look closely you can see where I pre-drilled the screw hole in the wrong place (apparently that whole "measure twice cut once" thing applies to drilling as well...)

On the right, the dovetail joinery on the drawer. Not bad for my first try, though you can see where I had to sand off about a sixteenth of an inch from top and bottom to make the drawer fit (that whole measuring thing again). Also, not sure how to prevent the exposed end grain from sucking in the squeezed-out glue during the clamping. But what the hell, it's a nice tight joint.

I just slapped this together in Google Sketchup, in hopes of soon being able to build it for our new TV, which we hope to get in the next week or so. In other words, NONE of this is real. Yet.

Not quite ready for occupancy... I stole the design from an old falling-apart birdhouse from the yard... bottom piece not shown as I hadn't cut it yet... Just using up my last piece of that nice red cedar...

Still needs the floor attached with some tiny hinges... but just about ready to move in!
