PA German Sawbuck Table Reproduction

This is a reproduction of a sawbuck table at the Landis Valley Museum. I tried my best to use only hand tools, but there may have been the occasional slice of a bandsaw blade along the way. The wood is curly cherry, and the finish is shellac and wax. The cool features about this project are sliding, half blind, and through dovetails; tusk tenons; and lamb’s tongue profiles. You can find the links to the construction process here:

    The original was supposedly built in 1750 but has 1805 carved into the drawer front.

    The original is a PA German sawbuck table made in the mid-1800s. It’s housed at the Landis Valley Museum in Lancaster, PA.
