I do a lot of turning (mostly pens that I give away before ever having a chance to post here), but this is the first real furniture project I’ve done. I don’t really count a small 3-leg table I made in 7th grade (although I still have it and it looks good for it’s old age). It’s a toy box for my daughter and is solid cherry with maple panels. It took a ton of work: from picking out the raw lumber and planning cuts to milling the boards, alignment, assembly, routing, finishing and getting everything looking good with sealant, poly and wax.
I happy to have finally completed it and couldn’t have done it without the help and expert tutelage of my dad, Sandy, who’s projects (including a a very similar toy box for my nephew :)) you can see at his link.
I also used just about every Festool product and many others to complete this build (thanks again, Dad) and some others. For fun, here’s a full list:
PS 300 EQ+
MFK 700 EQ
RO 125 FEQ+
RO 90 DX-FEQ+
ETS 125 EQ+
MFT/3 + Guide Rails
Domino + a ton of dominoes!
Delta X2 Jointer
Rigid Thickness Planer
Assorted Hand Tools
