Hi my friend told me about this website so i was thinking of sharing my first big furniture i made in a woodworking school in Sweden for the Stockholm furniture exhibition 2011.

it’s a hall furniture made in European oak and the inside of the boxes are in birch

it took me around 400-500 hours to make it and it’s completely made in massive wood

i used 2 huge planks of European oak and 4 planks of birch for the whole furniture

My idea was to make a good looking hall furniture with lots of space too store stuff in and a good low place to sit at when you take off/on your shoes.

all the angels of the furniture are 5 degrees and as you can see i made the 4 small top boxes to follow the angel
of the furniture

it was great fun to make this furniture and the most difficult thing about it was the make the top 4 boxes fit in perfectly….and gluing it together wasn’t that easy too ..but it came out as i wanted it to be so I’m glad i tried something more difficult with all the angels and so.

Pleas tell me what you think about it!

So much to like with this piece! The combined storage & seating makes for a very functional unit. The clean lines really let the beauty of the wood shine through. Excellent project!

What finish did you use?

I really like the design, that 5 degree angle is just enough to add a little elegance, great wood too.

Thanks for all the good comments ,
my finish was 2 layers off linseed oil and 3 layers off a transparent hard wax oil called osmo.
