This is yet another project that was dictated by my (very small) lumber stash and evolved from there. I built the main cabinet from goncalo alves with a live edge white oak top a couple of months ago and had no idea what to do with it until recently. I made a couple of dividers from flame birch and a set of legs from maple. I got inspiration for the shape of the legs from LJ user Lumberjoe’s valet, which was influenced by a Young & Norgate piece. The only power tool operations for this were a few cuts on the table saw to dimension the pieces and drilling holes for the dowels. All of the surface smoothing and finish prep was done with a block plane and card scraper, and the edges were eased over with 220 grit sandpaper. The finish is 3 coats of Danish oil, with the third coat being wet sanded into the top. The wet sanding made a huuuuge difference on the oak! It stands 24” tall, is 29” wide and 9.5” deep. I’m hoping that this piece will be my first ever furniture sale!
