The dino is one of two that I made. The body, legs and seat were made with pine boards from a waterbed while the rockers and cross boards are red oak from a pallet. The seat was stained a dark brown and sealed with urethane, the paint is rustoleum. I’d like to give a special thanks to Karson who supplied the plans for these. I hope to have 5 more for next years donations.
The step stool is white oak and is from a new yankee workshop book and has been modified to fit my tastes. First the dimensions in the book were too tall, the first step was 13” high, I shrunk it down to just under 10”. Second I tried dovetails but without a real bench and vise I just couldn’t accurately cut things. So I hand cut the square holes and used a block plane to shave the pegs to fit. Finish is danish oil.
