This is a project I did a couple months ago. It was my first time for mortise and tenon joints. They weren’t as hard as I had thought they would be. It’s red oak with one slate tile in the top. I used figure 8 fasteners to attach the top. The finish is BLO and poly. Hope you like it.

Yes I really like it. Excellent work and beautiful finish.
Oh yeah, the carbonate drink can not litter it. I’ve seen a beautiful bunch of “wind mills” made from drink cans ( I just lost the word – something like wind chime, but each can rotates on its axial and the main framework also rotates). But surely it’s not ww.

Thanks for the post.

Very good. I like that you don’t have wild cathedral grain in the oak, and that whatever finish you used didn’t contrast the grain too much, nor is it muddy. Color is very warm.
