These are the proto types I experimented with and have sized them down a little. They are made of bug riddled white fir and have no finish. I have the construction time down to just over two hours each to make them and will ask $75.00 each. The only cash I spend on them is for the glue, 1/4” crown staples and the wood drawer pull.

Very nice and very inexpensive. I am impressed that you can build them that quickly. Great job.

Since there is no finish and the wood is so soft there is little sanding and it takes me almost as long to make the drawer as the rest of the stand. I use pocket holes for the face frame and everything staples together. I like the instant gratification projects that come together quickly and since this wood has the small black bug holes as part of the charter of the wood I can use staples for assembly and don’t need to worry about hiding the holes or the need to make it a finer piece of furniture.

Fir is very beautiful wood. Especially like the bug holes. What finish will you use ?

Dan,
I will leave these unfinished and sell as is.

Oscorner,
I use 1/4” crown staples with a pneumatic stapler.

Treebones. I remember these. Very similar style. Fir is not easy to finish. Do you agree? Very nice.

You are right. I leave all my fir projects unfinished or paint them.
