This is a pack that includes all the pre-planed timber required to make a Shaker Table. By building this project, you will learn how to cut mortice and tenon joinery, how to taper legs by hand, and how to construct and fit a traditional dovetailed drawer.
This project pack consists of:
4 x Legs
3 x Side Rails
2 x Front Rails
4 x Drawer Runners
2 x Panels for Top (To be edge jointed)
1 x Drawer Front
3 x Drawer Sides (Maple)
1 x Hardware Pack (Brackets, threaded inserts, screws etc)
Please note that this pack includes material for a solid wood top, not a veneered MDF top as shown in the tutorial series. Parts are supplied oversized to be cut down and squared according to the dimensions listed on the plans.
Sheet Material Thickness
The plywood in this pack (for the drawer base) is 6.5mm thick which was intentionally chosen to account for our international audience. If you are cutting ¼” (6.35mm) grooves for this project, by the time you sanded and smoothed the plywood, you should find that it will fit quite well. If however you are using metric cutters, you will either need to do two slightly offset passes to create the required width, or you can plane/sand the plywood down to the required thickness. The latter isn’t ideal but can be a solution if required.
To avoid us machining packs to order, we aggregate orders over the duration of 30 days so they can be machined in one large batch. This allows us to be more efficient with material and our time, which in turn brings the cost to you down significantly.
At the end of the countdown, the orders from that month will be machined and sent out a few days later. If you miss the countdown, your order will be sent at the end of the following month.
