So this is the first commissionned work for me. Though, I must admit that it was by my mother in law for my father in law’s b-day. And it is to replace a foldable Tv stand that he uses as his laptop table. Paul is lefty and kinda rough. Walnut. Handcut mortaises and tenons.
Went into it blind, no drawing nor thought. Bought a walnut, board made the frame and tablet. Bought another board for the top. Am almost proud….and what bothers me i know how to fix (undercutting). Also sharpening a chisel is both difficult and necessary. Applied two coats of watco natural danish oil. Am getting less messy and wished i had been shown the straw glue pick up trick before my assembly.
