I was hired to build this for a christmas present for a friend this past winter. He saw one in a Menards flyer and wanted the same thing, only made out of solid wood.

Red oak construction. The 4 main rails between the sides are mortise and tenon. Some secondary members are screwed together and then covered with oak plugs.

Oak is stained (cant recall what kind), and finished with poly. Fun project to build.

Above it is a mirror I built in 2009, one of my earlier projects.

Nice bench.

I particularly like the split-top. Is it one cavernous area inside, or are there dividers in there too?

Very nice work. The extra storage area will always come in handy.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, the inside is one space, undivided. Although it could have easily been split in two.

You have great talent, Jeremy. Your projects reflect great attention to the original detail of A & C design. I can appreciate your work, and am heading to start all A & C furniture making. I started making projects of my own design first, with a lot of construction design flaws. But at least I was making sawdust, (out of my daughters bedroom who left for college) The bed was covered with a sheet of ply wood, the dresser was used to support my miter saw, the rest of the room was used to house a six foot work bench, and an six foot tall wire rack to hold all my tools. A window fan and shop-vac were my dust collection. Now I am moving to a house with a 2 car garage with plenty of room for more sawdust. Great post and thanks for more inspiration.

A friend of mine saw this and loves it! It is beautiful. I owe her a favor because she sewed my wife’s dress for our daughter’s wedding. Thinking of building this out of cherry with book matched curly maple. Do you have any drawings or anything you might sell? Trying to understand how it would together…built in sections etc…

really beautiful piece Jim
