Hello fellow Lumber Jocks. I decided to go with beer totes for my first post.
For this build I used 1x cedar planks from the local big box. There were issues because the planks had a crown to them, and I do not have a planer, yet. Extra clamping was needed because boards were out of square.
I wanted a rustic & clean look. The black one has a gloss polycrylic finish. The gray one is stain then glazed with an ebony stain and finished with a satin polyurethane. Gray one is held together with walnut dowels and the black one with deck screws. I’ve made 5 so far.
I will use a better milled wood for the next round, maybe popular or oak, to avoid the crowning issue. Also, thought of using reclaimed pallet wood for a more rustic look.
Thanks for viewing.
