My buddy wanted me to copy a chair he already had and build a 2’ X 2’ kids table for his son who is also my godson.
I had a stash of what I thought was olive ash but turned out to be spalted hackberry elm as far as the guy from hobbithouseinc.org and his friends could tell from the samples.
Everything is mortise and tenon. I cut the mortises by hand in the chairs but rigged up my drill press mortiser for the table legs to save some time. I used a thin spar urethane wiped on with shop towels and a final coat of satin sprayed on. lundmarks paste wax to finish it off. I used the spar because it’s what I had.
Different stages of the build
