This cute young lady at the gas station I use heard I was a wood worker. SO about a month ago she asked me to build a plant stand. She says and gestures, about this high, about this big. Surprise me.
I asked a couple questions about other furniture etc.
So went home and went rooting thru the stash and found some quilted white oak. Started drawing and made one leg. Was going to put i a lower shelf but went with stretchers.
Since it is going to get wet, I went with a satin poly finish. That really pulled the quilting and rays out. To get an even grain on the leg sides, I turned the legs 45.
The legs were tapered and the Lambs tongue’s were sort of tucked under.
I delivered it to her at work yesterday. Well was she ever thrilled. My wife got a couple pics on her phone but I can’t find the 1 of 20 cable to move the pic. Bluetooth did not work.
Anyway while standing there an older fella asked for a table a bit higher, for a reading lamp. Gave me his name and #.
So back out to the stash.
The table is 22” high, 12 3/4 ” top, Top of legs 1 3/4 bottom 1”. Top is fat 7/8 thick with the bottom beveled to lighted the look.
All comments welcome.
