This Project is on going and has taken on a life of it’s own.
What started out as a Christmas present several years ago, made out of shop scrapes and whatever was available.Simple joinery,square legs and a varnish finish. Evolved into this,The 2007edition,the 2008edition had ball and claw feet.It’s just the right size to work on.Not too big!
You can do mortise and tenon joinery, use exotic woods, faux finish, carve, turn and not get overwhelmed.Just have fun. I had the most fun this year “Turning” and Carving the legs. Nextyear I’m going to do some more carving on the legs
