Project Information

Little idea from my sketchbook that nagged me til I made it. The thought was fun with negative space. Making some mitered bridle frames with mortise and tenon drawer dividers and locking them together with some half lap spacers then inter locking all the sides and bottom, but I wound up mortising the bottom rails and gluing doweling and and alternating screwing the bottom shelf. I just didn't have enough clamps to glue up otherwise.

Mock ups I'd tell you I didn't need screws or glue. But every decision I made on this one just added ridiculous hours. I've never spent more time staining, but every corner and side is exposed.

Jatoba, Gregorian cherry stain, and wipe on poly

Decided against it, 3/4 gaps just really doesn't need it, except maybe for dusting purposes

I know ow that feeling all to well. I keep adding storage solutions on a as needed basis. The footprint for the tools and bench have not changed much.

That is a fun design. Seeing into the closed drawers is kind of cool.

My favorite part is the curve near the bottom of the sides ..
saved the in-progress pic of that
to "borrow", if i should ever want a new table.
So many other great features too.
