This was a remake of one of my favorite projects to date. I posted my first go at the design almost two years ago: Link to original

I did go into some detail on that post and won’t be too redundant here. Please see that post for the design credits and such to the original I was trying recreate. One poster added a link to the Popular Woodworking Magazine plan as well.

The original attempt was created for my home and still is one of my favorites. It’s been in use for almost 2 year and doesn’t get handled much, if any. To be fair as to the quality after two years, I did find that two dowels on the bottom stretchers didn’t hold tight. It wasn’t noticeable unless you tugged on it, but I did do redo the glue on those.

This attempt was a gift for my Mom’s retirement several month’s ago. I neglected to get photos before the party she got it at, but had a camera with me this weekend while visiting and snapped a couple. I realized I should have wiped the top of the fingerprints shown in the photo. Her’s was almost identical in design except the top was a about 1” wider on all sides. The contours on the legs matching the stretchers was also a little easier this time around.

Finish was the same as last – Walnut species with a Walnut Danish Oil. Added a slightly glossier finish to that after curing. Used wax as well as it isn’t handled and gave it a nice warm sheen and feel.

Sorry about the main photo. Not sure why it cropped the way it did for the thumbnail shot. Photography isn’t a skill I have.
