A new computer desk for meOld desk was too cramped, not enough drawer space. Started with a pile of Ash 1×6s. Raised panels via a hand plane, set into frames. Two frames made the drawer unit, a third frame made the leg unit..buils a pair of webframes to hold the 2 drawers in the knee well…Recycled some old handle for the main and knee well drawers. Door covers a set of cubby hole shelves…
Top shelf of the hutch has a Live Edge..
Finish is Puritan Pine Stain ( with a dash of dark walnut stain mixed in) then a few coats of Amber Shellac….About 6 weeks or so to build.

Josiah's Stepstool

Furnished content.

Josiah's StepstoolMy wife and I recently became Grandparents. It's a pretty sweet gig I gotta tell ya'! He will be walking before we know it and then from there I'm sure he will want to be part of all the action helping Grandma and Aunts and Uncle in the kitchen. Thus, a barstool with built in steps. A nifty way for him to come up to counter height. And, oh yeah, it will be quite handy for the grown ups to reach those high shelves.
Made from maple that was milled from rough 5/4 stock. All components are 1” thick. The seat is 8”x16” and the stools are 26” high. Loose tenons on all the joints including the through tenons. Color is 2 applications of General Finishes Medium Brown Dye. Top coat is three layers of semi-gloss Arm R Seal.
