Alway looking for a Christmas gift project. The current issue of American Woodworker delivered a great idea. (AW#150 Oct/Nov)
This little jem is about 19” tall, 9” deep and 14” wide. All mortise and tenon construction with pegs so it can be broken down easily.
This took about 5 hours including making the templates and fixture in photo 4. The template holds the side so it’s easy to use a router with a 3/4” spiral upcut bit for the mortise.
I plan to build about 12 of these for Christmas presents.
My wife and I both love this project.
This is made from walnut, finished with a walnut gel stain and spray on poly.
