This project is based on projects that member DreganTepis (seat) (coat rack) did. My wife was not a fan of the shelf on the coat rack since she says we’re not really “hat people” so I eliminated that. The top and legs of the seat are made from 8/4 red oak and the trim is cherry with birch ply for the shelves. I was able to draw an arc for the seat and just resaw the contour from a solid piece. The same with the legs, which were then sliced into 2” wide pieces. I also opted for the oak as it matches my floors and there was no need to use figured wood since there were no drawers or facing panels to show that off. I’ll save the bubinga I have for another project. I was going to use m&t to attach the legs and skirt but opted for pocket holes this time. I also used pocket hole screws and a plug cutter to attach the shelves to the legs. I used small bubinga triangles on the back side to better brace the open leg design. I am normally a Deft person but this was finished with Watco medium walnut. Curious to see how it holds up.

The one thing that was most exciting to me about this project, as a beginner, was that for the first time I had all of the tools I needed to do the job correctly. I sold my old HF bandsaw and replaced him (yes, it was a him as there was nothing even remotely gentle or feminine about that machine) with the Laguna 1412 and a few other additions in the past couple of months. I even used my oscillating spindle sander for the 3rd time in 3 years. It’s cool to watch a youtube vid of a project and know I have the technology, jigs and tools to do the job if not the skill, but that will come.

Yeah. That’s what I said but she kinda gave me the subtle stink eye so….there it is. One of those less is more things. :-) Thanks again.

That’s perfect – my wife will love it! I’m sure it will turn out a bit different, but thanks for the initial inspiration!
