The table Greg Isaak built was inspired by several original Shaker pieces, but he modified it with Sheraton-style tapered legs. There’s nothing tricky about building it, he says; all the work can be done with a few simple tools. Components are small, so stock preparation is simple, too. He explains how he mortised and turned the legs, how he constructed the case and drawers, and how he built the top. A detailed project plan illustrates his design.
