My wife needed something to sit on that would fit under our counter in the bathroom. I wanted to use my new self centering dowel jig so I jumped on the opportunity.
The wood is leftover 2×10 pine from Lowes I had in the garage.
I joined it with the self centering dowell jig, just one 3/8 dowel in each joint.
Used too much glue that squeezed out and caused the stain to be blotchy in those areas. Lesson learned!
Stain was 2 parts Dark Walnut 1 part Red Mahogany.
Satin polyurethane finish.
The finish turned out nice and dark, i just want to kick myself for letting glue touch the surface after sanding and before finishing. Haha ohhhhhh well, it was a fun little project to practice some joining and staining.
P.S. I want more clamps!!
