« Part 11: The Table has left the workshop (or) Tables and Tribulations Part 12 of Current Project series Part 13: So much for the faux live edge. »

A while ago I found an appropriately sized piece of wood along the road to replace a stair tread on our basement stairs (safety police need not apply). Before I had time to seriously consider if I should just chuck it, or re-use it my daughter spirited it up into her room. The tread has about 5 coats of paint on it and I was weighing if I wanted to strip it or chuck it.

So she’s asked if I could make a little shelf for her room out of it. Of course I will. I think I’ll preserve the broken edge, sand it smooth and feature it as if it was a live edge. Not sure though. The tread is inch thick, but I’m not planning on planing it, but who knows.

Currently I’m stripping the piece before the weather gets cold outside.
