My son needed a place to keep Legos in his room and I don’t like when my wife buys stuff at Pottery Barn. So here they are.

Nothing too fancy here, but the navy matches his bed and the Alder tops are a good contrast. Shellac, a light gel stain, and GF wipe on urethane finished the tops. The wipe-on was great! The finish is satin, a few coats with very light sanding gave a great finish that should not mark up easily.

This was my first glue up using dominos. It was simple and the 3 pieces came together perfectly.

They look great!. The domino is really handy. After you get over the price they are easy to love.

Isn’t it funny how after a certain point in your woodworking hobby store bought furniture seems like a sin? :)

Very nice and a heckuva lot better than Pottery Barn! I might add that I have been through many of those Lego sets myself with my son.

Good Job,

You can’t even tell they were made from Lego’s.
How many did it take?

Have your say...
