This is my first attempt at anything “furniture grade,” and it was accomplished solely with hand tools. The general plans came from a recent issue of WoodWorking magazine, although they were altered during the process due to dumb mistakes and the efforts to correct them. I’ve started a new one, with the hope and expectation of improving on the quality of the mortise and tenon joints—all 22 of them!
The wood is alder, with a light antique maple stain, 3 coats of wipe-on poly that was steel wooled, and a coat of micro-crystalline wax. The tile top is Italian clay (I think). I hope that the picture is of suitable detail … this is also my first attempt to photograph a piece of woodworking.
