One of my early projects of stained pine, probably finished with Danish Oil. Built it mostly to practice my handcut dovetails. As you can see I never fully sanded out the scribe lines and the stool has been very well used by the family. The half dovetails were trickier than they look. It really needs to be sanded down properly and refinished.

Thanks. There is one in the picture that needed a little fudging, a little sawdust and glue to fill it in but overall it wasn’t bad for a first time.

It stood the test of time, don’t touch it! As it gets older it gets more valuable. Nice work by the way.
