This is a project my daughter asked to do after looking through Michael Dunbar’s Country Woodworking book. She helped all through the project on the things she is big enough to do like drilling holes with an egg beater or brace, catching the offcuts when handsawing, pounding nails, rasping, card scraping, sanding and painting. Her little brother pitched in a bit too.
The finish was some acrylic paint (one coat) which was rubbed with wax and 0000 steel wool. This gave it a nice distressed finish where the wood shows through on the highspots of the grain and the edges.
