I saw this in a kitchen shop for AU$280.00 and I figured I could make it a little cheaper.. like AU$25.00 all up.
Had to leave it when I sold the house. it was made from radiata pine and finished with a one step stain and finish.. again didn’t know what I was doing. Won’t do that again but it was what I knew at the time and it worked., lol
I also did the tiling in the kitchen, and repainting.. nearly finished the reno before I sold!

lary , you must have the cleanest shop in the world !
everything gets made into something ,
and let me guess ,
with the money you save ,
you buy more wood ?
what a wonderfull trip thru your life !
this must be why you are lazy now ?

I like the design. Did this have cup hooks on the bottom?

No cup hooks .. did think about them but decided that the room under was not sufficient , with limited bench space.
