Woodworking: A Shaker Sewing Stand (Bedside Table)

Here is my version of the 2 drawer shaker sewing stand. I modified the traditional square top design by using a round top which is common with shaker side tables. The rest of the design closely matches the original table I already have.

The wood is cherry, finished with oil.
