A few weeks ago Karen, Jay’s mom, was rearranging her study. Jay had to go over and help with some technical difficulties regarding her computer, but while he was there he offered to make her a stand for her lamp to sit on. I can’t recall what happened to what it was currently sitting on. Either way, a new piece of furniture was needed.
So Jay designed and built a small stand. Then I finished it. I didn’t get any pictures of it in bare wood. Sorry. Here it is after I stained it with a medium stain:
This was a new design for Jay and he gave it a little bit of flair.
He gave the legs a bit of a curve and then routed the edges. I think they turned out really nice. After the pieces were poly’d and assembled it really looked nice.
This is a bit more stylish than what Jay has done in the past. Each project is a chance to try something new.
It’s a bit stork-like.
The top looks streaky because the last coat of poly was still wet when I took the picture.
Speaking of finishing, though, I was so excited to find something new for my area. I guess that it’s technically not new, but you know what I mean.
I was very excited when I found it. I had gone to Michael’s to look at yarn and while I was waiting in the check-out line I spotted a couple of these racks with $5 price tags. There was a 8″ x 11″ and this was 12″ x 12″ (I think). I scooped it up and brought it home. Do you know why?
I thought I had taken a picture of the mess this area was before getting this rack. I couldn’t find it so you’ll just have to imagine it piled with different grits of paper. I was going to buy a magazine rack to do organize my sand paper. I just never got around to it. Now all I have to do is label the different grits. How exciting!
