This is a bench seat for my daughter. The woods are a mix of solid oaks, oak plywood, Baltic birch plywood, purple heart and bloodwood.
The corners dovetails, the drawer stops and locks, and the drawer pulls are bloodwood. The drawer faces are solid oak with purple heart edge banding tongue and grooved to the oak. Drawer box sides are solid oak with Baltic birch bottoms.
Picture one is the bench before the arms were put on.
Picture two is shows the sliding tray.
Picture three is shows the fit on the hinged lid.
Picture four show the drawer stops and locks which use brass bars to implement the stops and locks.
Picture five show the tapered sliding dovetailed drawer dividers used to stiffen the drawer carcase.
The finish is two coats of Danish applied two days apart followed by three more days of curing time, then four coats of wipe on poly. Three more days of cure time, then the surface was lightly sanded at 600 grit and steel wooled. Hard paste wax was then applied to all surfaces.
Thanks for looking in Lumberjocks.
