Walnut Footstool – Dry Fit

Walnut Footstool – Dry Fit, originally uploaded by rgdaniel.

Shown here held together only by gravity, friction, and maybe static electricity, this is a dry fit of my work-in-progress black walnut footstool. The lid will be 3/4-inch Baltic Birch, upholstered. The floor bottom is also Baltic Birch, and has had a coat of stain already so it shows darker. The walnut should darken up just from the poly finish it will get.

I should probably notch out for the hinges BEFORE I glue this puppy together, I’m just thinking now…
