This was what I though would be an easy project to donate for a silent auction. After cutting tenons and chopping out mortises I have learned I suck at mortise and tennon joints.
This was a from scrap project, the legs and stretchers are from truck dunnage, use to haul oilfield pipe to drill sites and the top came out of the firewood pile. All in all I have $0 invested and it was a great learning curve piece. I’m looking forward to doing more mortise and tenon.
You can see the woos pile that was the supply for this project in the picture. For those always wondering where to find decent wood for free go visit your local trucking flatbed trucking company. Just make sure to make them something nice once in a while and you’ll never run out of wood.
