Foot stool. This was made for a contest, didnt win nothin but oh well haha. It was a fun project regardless.
The contest rules were to take a board 7 1/4” X 4’ X 3/4” and make something. Up to 25% of the finished project could be accent wood or what ever you really wanted. The board I was given was a piece of red oak. Kiaat is used for the grid and casing. The underside of the top is 1/4” baltic birch plywood for reinforcement. The legs and top are connected with cherry dowels. No mechanical fasteners were used in the project at all, only wood glue and dowels. Finish is danish oil and polyurethane.
Questions, comments, suggestions and the like are much appreciated as this is my first legit piece of furniture. Made plenty of mistakes but I learned a lot. If only I had the tools to make things perfectly square
