This end table is the third piece of furniture I have built using OSB ( Oriented Strand Board). I designed it using some of the visual elements of the rocking chair and footstool. My goal was to make all three pieces look like a set. I followed the same construction procedure for all three pieces. You can see how I did this on my blog of the rocker build.
I finished all the pieces with three to four coats of high gloss water based poly sanding between coats when necessary.
Working with OSB is messy. The end grain is pock marked with voids in the material that don’t completely sand out but the face grain is a smooth marble looking finish. I like the look, it is unusual and pleasing to my eye. I will probably try building more pieces using OSB in the future. I have grown fond of the Chicken McNuggets of building materials.
As always, thanks for looking.
