In July 2013 I made a step stool to allow Aurora to reach the clothes line under our veradah in comfort.
Well now after the Smiths Chrisps crate arrived she imediately placed an order for a second one.
I asked about the dimensions required and received the reply,
“Exactly the same as the first one please”.
Well that was going to be easy to replicate so I set to work
Pallet pine material,jointed and thicknessed.
Legs and frame cut to an angle of 5 deg
Biscuit jointed top (eight No 20 biscuits)
Titebond III glue (biscuits need this this of glue) and screws (The final screw count was a bit of a surprise sixty six 66 screws)
Rounded over the edges with the router and sanded to 80 Grit.
Sanded it to 320 grit and applied sanding sealer and then resanded to 320 grit for a preliminary finish.
