Hey All

So I’ve finished the project. I ended up learning quite alot. I just want to thank the guys at the Sawdust Chronicles ( for putting on this contest. It has been great motivation to both complete the project and push myself to get the best results I could. So thanks a bunch.

So there were rules to this contest and I stuck to the rules pretty good.

Size: Had to fit in a 32×30x30 cube. The longest dimention is 31 7/8th from side to side. Barely squeezed it in. All else was less than 30.

Expenses: Total ~$135
Wood – Solid cherry – Approximately 15 board feet. $4.50 a board foot Cost $67 bucks
Sand Paper – 30 bucks
Screws & biscuits – 2 bucks
Wipe on Poly – 15 bucks
Walnut pegs – 5 bucks
Glue – 10 bucks
Sanding Drums (2) – 5 bucks

Construction Materials:

Solid cherry boards & some walnut plugs.

Wood filler. – No store bought wood filler used. I did make my own using sawdust and glue. I used this on the plugs, when I cut them flush there was some tearout.

Finishing Materials: Wipe on poly

Adhesives: Tight bond

Joinery: Butt Joints, screws and biscuits

Tools: No new tools bought.

Thanks again to everyone for your suggestions and support
