This solid wood table can be made in a variety of sizes from a small elegant entrance way piece to a long sleek hall table or a sideboard in a dining room. The mitered dovetail joinery is done with a combination of handtools, a simple shop made router jig and a small bandsaw. The shouldered dado joint will be easily done with a shop made router jig and detailed with handtools. One or more drawers can be added to the design.

Demonstrations on different types of drawer construction will take place so students can choose the one best suited for this and future projects. By the end of the week students will leave the workshop with the confidence and knowledge to make and use the jigs in their own workshops for many other projects.
