The drop-leaf table featured on this episode of Rough Cut has a lot of bang for the buck. Not only is the Shaker-type style beautiful to look at, but the finger joints are fun to learn how to make.
To get inspiration for this project, Tommy takes a Road Trip to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to see drop-leaf and gate-leg tables from centuries past. Back in the shop, Tommy is joined by Chuck Bender of The Acanthus Workshop in Pennsylvania.
