Woodworker: David TuttleA big fan of Shaker furniture and of Garrett Hack, Tuttle based the design of this table on a Hack table featured in FWW #104 (“Building a Strong, Light Carcase”). Instead of pear and maple, Tuttle used mahogany for the carcase and legs, spalted maple for the drawer fronts, and maple for the other drawer parts. The pulls are ebony. At 22-3⁄4-in. deep by 27-1⁄2-in. wide by 29-1⁄4-in. tall, Tuttle’s table is a bit smaller than Hack’s. The finish is dye, shellac, and polyurethane for the carcase, and shellac alone for the drawers and pulls.
