Awhile back my father inlaw came to me with a add he clipped out of some magazine and asked if I could make this. With some input from my wife I came up with this. It is ment to sit by your arm chair and hold your favorite beverage, Remote, and magazines. My wife liked it so much I had to make her two. It is made out of pine with a oak stain and spray poly. Thanks for looking.

That’s an unusual design and it seems like it wood work very well. Good work.
