This was a fun project aimed at improving my veneering skills. The ambrosia maple veneer was super cheap ($1/sq ft) and gave me a lot of character for a good price. Legs were made from a single slab of curly maple sold as “shotgun stock”. it was such an easy furniture piece (read: pair of furniture pieces) and a joy to make. very simple, straight forward, accessible furniture with quality material. dimensions ended up being around 21”Hx15”Wx15”D.
easy easy mitered/biscuited veneered 1” MDF. easy easy sorta-half lapped legs to carcass. super fun, super easy, whatever you wanna do kinda piece. i’m thinking about making an entire bedroom suite in this style (which i dubbed the “Arca” series).
