I know this project may seem like a cliche’, but it’s just so darned fun to make!
It’s quartersawn white oak, fumed with the ‘high octane’ ammonia for 48 hours, then hand rubbed with a few coats of boiled linseed oil and finished off with wax.
Although simple in appearance, there’s a lot of joinery involved, and that added to the overall time to complete it. It’s not my design—I don’t do that—but it is similar to a Stickley piece and the dimensions came from an old Stickley catalog.
The warden likes it, and I’m also satisfied with the result. But like I said earlier, I really enjoyed building it.
