Contemporary Shaker Table

I am currently cleaning up the shop and came across some cherry that was left over from a floor installation.  It was thin stock so I laminated pieces together to get my desired thickness.  I also had some nice cocobolo lying around that I thought would make a nice contrast to the cherry.  For this project  I decided to make all the cuts and joints with my festool equipment.  I used the TS-75 with the track for all the cross and rip cuts.  The Domino 500 joiner made the project come together much faster than tediously hand cutting the joints.  Festool was the reason I was able to crank this out in one day.  I had never done a bread board end on a table top before.  I think that these tools helped me achieve a clean, strong joint.  Now, all that is left to do, is a couple more coats of finish.
