This was my first attempt at a “real” piece of furniture. I built this for my 3yr old daughter in Dec 2005. It’s cherry with a Waterlox finish.
I made 2 jigs (shown in my shop photo) for this project. A basic adjustable taper jig for the legs and a fence guided tenon jig that I built from plans found on a wood working site by a woodworker named Jim Frye.
I designed it myself with the help of sketch-up, and tried to stick to a shaker sort of concept.
This was a great learning project for me and really got me hooked. Since this project, I’ve tried some new skills on several other projects that I’ll try to post here soon.
