This is the very first piece of furniture I’ve ever made. I didn’t really follow any plan, though I should have. I thought about adding a bottom shelf, but it was an afterthought and since the legs are attached I’m not really sure how to do it. I will have to call this one “done” and try to do better the next time.
This was built of a local wood here in Papua New Guinea called, Kwila. The two end top pieces are fixed in place, but the middle, of course is not. I have experience a little swelling that makes the middle section fairly tight, but it contracts again with the weather. I’m not sure how to remedy this issue.
I welcome any and all critiques and advice. Thanks.
