Robert Treanor doesn’t sew, but he loves Shaker sewing stands. The one featured in this article has three cabriole legs and an underslung, two-way drawer, making it useful as a nightstand. The yoke unites the top, the drawer, and the pedestal, and detailed project plans show how it all fits together. The drawer is suspended and guided by two hangers, and another illustration details the drawer construction. Side information show how Shaker stands changed over the years.
