I thought I would turn out a couple spruce patterns for some stools and try some different joinery to experiment. One really needs to pay attention to which side of the blade one is on when cutting angled dadoes. My wife and my contractor buddy both got a good laugh from this blunder. Have a laugh on me.

Mart, that’s called “contemporary design”. Finish it up and take it to one of those galleries with all of the other strange things that people buy in it. This could end up in Fine Woodworking’s Reader Gallery.

Looks just like something I would do, I make some major screw up on just about every project I`ve ever done. just learn how to overcome them with out too much more extra work.

The part I like is you did not let a mistake stop you. I like how you kept going and assembled it. Are you going with a wipe on fnish or spray? :-)

Good one. I would not know where to start on all of my screw-ups.

Maybe the cops could use it for a sobriety balance test.

Looks like a special plant stand to me.

One quick tip:

Cross cut the top right down the middle, swap end-for-end, and make some walnut end-on-end dovetails. Voilá: One nice piece of art!!!

You could always join another piece of wood to the bottom of the legs, but then you won’t know which way is up.

LOL! We’ve all been ther, done that, got the t-shirt. Now you’ve made a nice piece, the only challenge is to figure out exactly what it is. :-)

I don’t get it! What is wrong with his design?
