This is one of four Spring/Summer projects I’m completing, to clear out shop for winter work. This project came about as I cleaned the shop after my bed, dresser and armoire projects. It was a lot of the shop scrap, Curly Maple, Cherry and some Walnut from an earlier project. they were glued up to make boards of each, then glued together. Resawed to 5/64 for the basket weaves. I router 1” mortrice slots in to the Walnut frame. the basket weave slats were glued and blocked into the slots. I made my own dowels out of Maple and Cherry, I thought they gave a look of slotted screws. The finish is four coats of Antique Oil. I hope you all like it. It was a Beautiful way to finish off a lot of scrap that would have seen the wood burner.
