These were mainly created as practice for doing joinery with my Origin Shaper. All the joinery turned out great, but it did give me plenty of practice on setting up the joinery and I learned a bit. The design was downloaded from the shaper site and I did the first one as the directions were written. My wife immediately decided it was a plant stand, even with the curved seat. She then wanted it a lighter color, I had used Wenge. I explained I would make her another using a lighter wood, I used Elm and flattened the seat with only curves on the outer edges (for plant stands). I also surprised her with two. On the second two I cleaned my process by using the table saw to form the curve raising it a little at a time and cutting from each edge to get the curve even, then chisel and sanding to finish it. The tenons were much tighter as well. Fro finish, I just applied a seal coat of shelac and used wax as the finish
