« Part 3: Published Articles: The Walnut Box Part 4 of My Esperanto Woodworking Book Project series Part 5: Published Articles: Toy Crocodile »

This was a project that I really looked forward to sharing with the Esperantist community as it’s a pretty classic design.

The original Lumberjocks project post is here [link]

The published Esperanto version of the article is here [link]

We’re almost caught up with my past articles!

Love the idea of the flatulence slot. Hadn’t thought of that.

Thanks for posting that Dave. You inspired me to take a spare 2×12 and spare 2×4 and turn them into furniture (with two flatulence slots) this morning:

I’ll write it up as a project after I get a chance to paint it in some tasteful and subdued color like you did. ;-)

Glad to have given inspiration to you. That color matches the original quite well!

FYI, I used the leftover piece of 2×12, cut diagonally in half, to put a brace inside each leg to the seat. When I was using the rasp to round the edges (while sitting on the bench), I could feel a little flex in it, so I grabbed the scrap, cut it in half, and screwed it in. No more wiggle at all, and one less scrap to have around the shop. You can see a corner of it peeking out in my picture.

Posted. Not as pretty a color as yours, but it’ll do.

Looks good. I always had the idea that the model for mine was originally painted in the 1970’s and the tradition carried on.
