This worktable has an overall form that relates it to Shaker tables made in New Hampshire. Its large size required supporting legs that are thick at the top but though exceptionally tapered at the bottom. The turned knobs are characteristic of like tables made in New Hampshire. A related worktable believed to have been made in Canterbury, New Hampshire in circa 1820 is in the collection of the Canterbury Shaker Village.1 Made of birch and maple with salmon paint, it was likely used for the ironing of large sheets and storage of ironing boards when not in use.  This table may have served a similar purpose.
