I came up with these designs as Christmas presents and ended up making six of them They are nothing more then 1 3/4” X 5” X 13” blocks of left over ends from other projects that I cut a 1/4” dado all around, drilled 3 2” holes part way through and added legs then sanded to 200 and finished with wipe poly.
Since then I have made 10 more and will bring them to the next show I do.

that looks very similar to another pattern on here, did you find it in a magazine? I was thinking woodsmith, but now I cant find the reference…

It is very beautiful.

These are great looking projects and a great way to use up those smaller pieces of wood.
