I’ve been lurking here for a while, but this is my first project to post. All mortise and tenon joinery (first time for that, too), with wedged tenons for the wider planks. I learned a lot about M&T and the glue ups that ensue.

The wood is red oak, with the exception of a square in the middle of the bottom (aka my “board stretcher”, after I accidentally cut something the wrong length) and the wedges, which are walnut. I finished it with Teak Oil because I had it on hand. It should hold up pretty well in my closet.

Great project! Lots of nice little details. Very well done. Looks a lot better than any of my early projects, which means you’ve got a ton of talent/potential. Keep up the great work and thanks for posting. Next step, blog on the process?

Thanks for the kind words. I’d love to blog on the process, but I didn’t really take many pictures. Maybe for the next project :)

Have your say...
