Today’s #FollowFriday woodworker is Anthony DiSabatino, who we just featured in the Show Us Your Woodworking column in our newly published October 2013 issue of Wood News Online. Anthony qualifies himself as a “wood hobbyist” as he has been gaining new tools and learning new woodworking skills over the past few years. In his article we focused on his woodworking projects including a Shaker trestle table, and a modified reproduction Shaker blanket chest with drawers, both seen below.

The Shaker trestle table has a very unique background as it was made with planed down oak boards taken from the flooring of Anthony’s restored 1860’s era barn near Dayton, OH. The barn work was completed mostly by an Amish work crew from Indiana, but Anthony  completed a lot of the interior work (replacing the wood floor support beams and flooring, new support pillars, and new doors).
