Dimensional lumber and birch. White vinyl inlay, top decorated by JJ’s grandpa. First time I had ever cut dovetails. Rails below to house a pair of plastic bins. All of this protected by enough polyurethane to stop a .30-06…or at least JJ’s markers.

I built stuff for my kids when they were young, but none of it looked as good as this. Nice job! Great dovetails.

Puts to shame the MDF monstrosity I built for my kids. Very nice!

@Bret – I’ve built my share of monstrosities. The other half has now forbid any furniture that involves: Thinwall conduit, PVC drains, 1/4”-20 threaded rod, etc…@Cory & Jim – Thanks. The dovetails were the only part of the project I didn’t have to rush. I could take my time cutting them by hand at night since that didn’t make any noise and her bedroom is directly above the garage.
