Being new to the site, I have an accumulation of older projects created the past few years to upload. Here are three:
The first is a poplar couch table that other than the top, doesn’t get seen much, sitting as it does behind the couch (pulled out of the way to see the table). I can’t claim the legs for this table or the second table – they’re stair railing spindles. I made this 2 years ago.
The second is a table for our computer printer which currently hold a turntable and computer link to allow me to convert albums into electronic files. This was made 5 years ago, and I can’t recall if it is poplar or maple.
The last is a set of doors into our formal living room created to replace a toddler gate that was keeping a set of Yorkie puppies out. I got tired of climbing over the gate or opening and closing it every time I want to enter the room. And while the Yorkies only need about a 2 ft high block to keep them out but since I don’t like to bend, I made the doors high. It was my first attempt at mortise and tenon joints. I may have made the tenons a bit long – 2 1/2 inch for the 3 inch side rails. I didn’t want to have the frames shift out of alignment once they were hung.
