At first glance, a novice woodworker might turn the page on this Philadelphia-style dressing table thinking that the craftsmanship is too difficult. But before you give up, scan these pages. The carcase is joined with mortise-and-tenon joinery and the interior is nailed together – exactly as it was done on the original.

And if you’re a woodworker with more than a few projects under your belt, you’ll be amazed at the quick-to-build, straightforward interior. In fact, you’ll question how furniture was built in the past.
