Had a Father-Daughter project with our 14 year old. Design is inspired by the plans found in “The Anarchist’s Design Book.” Modified the height so we could better utilize some of the scrap pine boards I had in the shop already. Oh, and I completely disobeyed Chris and used power tools. My daughter seemed to enjoy using the router to plow out the dados the best. We used pocket holes under the shelves to draw everything together. We tongue&grooved the back boards on my table saw using a box joint stack. We considered adding a bead to the boards but decided to leave them plain. Good project. We decided to just leave it natural considering how rough most of the boards were already. We’ll see how she ages. Paint or stain is always an option down the road.
