My first attempt at making furniture.

Submitted by MikeA on Sat, 04/11/2015 - 18:48

This is my first DIY furniture build.  Had some issues with the Poly, but it turned out better than I thought.  I used a couple of Turnbuckles with black hammer spray paint instead of the back slant supports.  Made some mistakes, but learned a lot.  Thanks Ana for the great site and all of the great posts.

Actually it was a pristine pine project board that was very easily dented and marked. If you notice the corner, that's from shortening it and roughly cutting with a circular saw. The end of the cut chipped the corner off and I just sanded it down with a rotary sander. Same sander for the edges gave me the tree ring look. I also went with cheaper 2x4 that had some blemishes and then sanded them down to give it a more lived in look for the side legs.
