The roots of Shaker furniture design can be found in the modest country pieces like this finely-made sewing table from rural New Hampshire. Note the square tapered legs and the delicately molded rim to keep pins and other small objects from rolling off the top. Mortise-and- tenon joinery, with dovetailed drawer. Note the beautiful hand cast brass bail with oval back plates. The Shakers, of course, would have eliminated this detail, describing it as a "superfluity", or luxury. The original is in a private collection. We make this Sewing Table in clear cherry, with drawer interior of pine. Height is 26". Top measures 16" x 16". Shown in Oil & Wax Finish. This furniture kit contains all the materials needed, except the final finish, including sandpaper, Shaker Oil Finish, hardware, and simple step-by-step instructions. Each component has been precisely fashioned to assure an accurate fit before you do the final hand sanding and finishing. Only common hand tools are needed to assemble our kits. You'll discover that the simplicity of Shaker furniture makes it not only beautiful, but also easy to assemble.
