I moved into a new house about a year ago with very little furniture. My wife decided to let me try to make the furniture for downstairs. This is the first time I have made furniture that is supposed to look nice (the only other furniture I have made is just workshop stuff).
Anyway, the furniture consists of four 4 ft. book shelves, four 6 ft. book shelves, 3 end tables, a desk and a coffee table. I used hard maple with heartwood and sapwood. I reinforced the joints with screws and covered them with kingwood pegs. I finished it by spraying 4 coats of semi-gloss lacquer.
