I saw this in the stickley catalog a couple months ago and decided I had to make it. I love the design – it’s surprisingly smaller than I thought. Joinery was difficult/fun. I really enjoy the mortise and tenon joinery. It’s time consuming but so rewarding when it fits snug. It’s made out of poplar. The finish is milk paint – solider blue with 50% Snow White. I sanded the finish to appear distressed. I felt that was ok considering the design is probably 80-100 years old. It still needs a coat of polycrylic but I wanted to share before I forgot.
Construction about 6 hours.
Finish about 2 hours.
The plans are in Robert Lang’s book.
