I wanted to build something that looked complicated but wouldn't become a retirement project. My wife likes it so much that she wants a kitchen table using the same design. I reminded her she wouldn't donate any money towards the Shaper Tool so the kitchen table will cost her $2500. She offered $1500.

Your choice of materials will vary but I used 3/4 pieces of ash for 98% of the project. 8 - 3/4" x 18" x 8.5" For scroll pieces (2 per Scroll) 4 - 3/4" x 24" x 2.5" For Foot (2 per foot) 2 - 18" x 1.5 x 1.5 For upright still 1 - 20" x 1.5 x 1.5 For tie rail 1 - 3/4 x 24.5" x 22" For lower table 1 - 3/4 x 26.5 x 24" For upper table top 2 - 24.5 x 3" x 3" For upper and lower table separators 4 - 1/2" x 10.5" x 2.875" For drawer sides 2 - 3/4" x 16.125" x 2.785" For drawer fronts 2 - 1/2" x 16.125" x 2.785" For drawer backs

You will have to work out the details for yourself because I built this on the fly. The basic shapes are provided for the Shaper work but the mortise and tenons will have to be worked out. 1) After Routing the scroll pieces (legs) you will glue the 3/4" front and back pieces together using 3/8 dowels to align them together and keep them in position when glue and clamping. 2) After routing the foot pieces you will glue two together using dowels to align, glue, and clamp. 3) The upright still is a solid piece of stock 18" x 1-1/2' x 1-1/2". I used the ultimate vertical work station to create 3/8 mortices in the ends for gluing dowels to the foot. 4) The tie rail that connects the two legs together I created 1" square x 1" deep tenon on the ends using the ultimate vertical work station. I routed the 1" square x 1" deep pocket in the legs to receive the tie rail tenons. The upright rails will be 18" apart when assembled. 5) The lower and upper tables were created by gluing 2" to 3" wide x 3/4" thick boards together. 6) I used Shaper Origin to make box joints for the drawer.
