The stretchers are made from construction 2×6s. I cut a 1/4” off each side to make square (no round edges) and let them sit in the shop for a month or so. One of them twisted, so I was glad I had extras. I followed Schwarz’s plans...

In the marketplace I am an auditor. I've been woodworking as a hobbyist since 2012. In 2013, I sold all our living room furniture and built it all. My wife wasn't crazy about it since it took 8 months to get 4 pieces. Like a lot of you, I dislike cheaply made furniture. I really like the shaker and A&C styles.
-Maloof-style low back
-cedar strip canoe
-a whole set of Windsor chairs
-A&C master bed
-A&C drop front desk
-shaker built-ins in my garage and hallways
-A&C inspired kitchen cabinets & island
-hand tool cabinet
-shaker oval boxes
-Krenov standing cabinet
-a huge slab of wood
I love this hobby.

For the end caps I decided to use some walnut I bought a while ago. I went with a standard C-channel end cap. I really wanted to do a sliding dovetail, but it seemed a little too difficult at this point in my woodworking. First I cut a stra...
For the top, I decided to use construction grade 2×4s. However, I did not realize that I was short by a few when I started. My father in law gave me some redwood 2×6s from a deck he took down a few years ago. He told me all the rich peop...
Legs first… I know this seems backwards (especially given the various blogs and books on the subject) but I’m going to give it a shot. My neighbor gave me a 12’ 6×6 pressure treated beam. I read somewhere that you should ...
