These two Shaker tables are of basically the same design, with one major difference. The simple decision of whether to make tapered square legs or turned ones alters the whole feel of the table. The rest of the construction is standard mortise-and-tenon joinery, a dovetailed top rail, and a dovetailed drawer. A simple tapering jig makes quick work of the square legs, while the turned ones require a lathe and add a bit more of a challenge. Read more about it in the FWW article by Christian Becksvoort.
