Description from Shaker Workshops
An early photograph of the ironing room at the Mt. Lebanon, New York community shows a group of Shaker Sisters gathered around a table nearly identical to this one. Its massive construction–with mortise-and-tenon joints, and its generous top (a full 1 1/4″ thick)–with breadboard ends pinned in to prevent warping, have stood up after decades of daily use. Wooden wheels are fixed in place by a small metal pin, to be taken out when the table is moved for cleaning. Useful as a conference table, dining table, or desk. The original is in a private collection.
We make the Mt. Lebanon Work Table entirely of solid clear cherry. Height is 30″. Width is 33″; available in four lengths. Shown in Oil & Wax Finish.
Available as an unfinished kit and a “made to order” finished piece.
Kit is supplied with Oil Finish, rather than stain, to bring out the natural color of the cherry wood.
Prices start at $1400.00
