Here’s my first “real” project (and first project to Lumberjocks)
Small entry bench. Materials were ash (from internetlumber.com, not affiliated) with a cherry strip down the middle. Legs are mitered and tapered. Joints other than top and leg miters are pocket screws. Stain is minwax early american with poly on top. Looked better pre stain (wife’s request to stain).
Plenty of lessons learned. First, glue ruins stain. Second, stain ruins nice wood. Third, I like pocket screws. Fourthly (last one), making mistakes means you’re learning. Learning means I get to try version 2.0 =)
