That is a nice simple solution. Thanks for sharing.

Nice job on this project! I like that this project is made from relatively inexpensive framing lumber. The design is simple and pleasing and it appears to be structurally sound. The edge profile on the top looks nice. It does not appear that any of the edges are eased—perhaps a small round over bit in the router will soften the edges? Spray it with some shellac to seal the knots and then paint it. Nice job!

It already has a shellac finish and wouldn’t ever ever paint anything I’ve made. To me paint is for out houses and barns.

I agree on the not painting it. It looks awesome as is!!! I really like being able to use framing lumber for projects folks would never expect. It could totally be a desk as well. I like the edge detail. For your sake, a light chamfer would be nice using a hand plane. Then again, in the shop you are the only one who cares.

WELL DONE!!!
