This is the first time I’ve built something from a plan. It’s nice having someone else figure out all of the details for me and it reduced the number of mistakes that I made.
I ventured out of my comfort zone on this one. In the past I’ve used Festool Dominos (loose tenons) in lieu of mortise and tenons. This time I made the mortise and tenons. I cut the tenons on the table saw and used a drill press and chisels to cut out the mortises. I’m starting to get the hang of this woodworking stuff.
Wood: walnut (finished with teak oil) and curly maple (unfinished).
The plan is from Wood Magazine, Sept. 2011 (#206).
