I completed this piece in Nov. The plan is in Woodcraft mag. It was mostly easy to build with the exception of the drawer slides. when I make a piece with drawers I’ve always use roller slides but the plan called for wooden slides so I thought what the hell I can do this. wooden slides don’t lend themselves to children’s furniture and they sometimes stick and jam a little. To solve this I use minwax pastewax. they slide much better now. The wood is red oak which is about the only reasonable priced hardwood we can buy up here in northern Alberta. The finish is tung oil, wipe on satin poly and paste wax. Man how I envy you guys who live in the eastern states and Canada who have access to all those beautiful hardwoods right outside your back door. I hope you appreciate what you have.
