This is an oak version of a Woodsmith project from their plans. This was the second piece of furniture I had ever made. It was made for a loved one. It was stained to her taste (too dark for me). The door pulls are made from wood reclaimed from an old door (room 3029) that hung in the Wisconsin State Capital building in the early 1900’s. I bought the door at auction. The state hung new doors sometime around the 1940’s and then these doors sat in storage until put up for sale in 2006. I’ve been putting pieces of this door into furniture (where appropriate) since. I thought it would be cool to have a little history in some of the furniture I make and learn from.
