My entry for the competion is a small side table made from Douglas fir. More details about the table and additional photos are presented in my blog. I’m pleased with the way the table turned out. More importantly, my wife likes it a lot. Now on to the box project.

I’d have to use a whole 2×4 just to get one leg right. Great job!

FIR is a beautifully grained wood. Especially quartersawn with parallel grain.

Great looking project. Got my vote.

Great job with one 2×4. I am really impressed with what folks are doing with such limited resources.

Thanks for all the nice comments. It was a fun project. I didn’t have a good place to take photos, so I used Photoshop to crop out the background and then filled the cleared area with a solid light blue. That way you aren’t distracted by all the clutter behind the table.
