I’d say that turned out pretty damned close to my original design! This was my first time making something from rough cut lumber. I designed this piece in SketchUp to sit next to our couch, be usable for drinks on the side and knick-knacks on the back, and hold all of Tamaryn’s cookbooks. I built it out of scrap lumber obtained from a furniture maker – these were his cutoffs. The tops are live-edge walnut, the base is ash, and the shelves are walnut and mahogany. The whole thing took roughly three weeks from start to finish. Much of it’s creation was documented with more descriptions on instagram.

I’d say that turned out pretty damned close to my original design 🙂 My first time making something from rough cut lumber. Thanks, @dewalttough planer! Note: @tam_a_ryn chose the chunk of walnut I salvaged from a neighborhood tree for the live edge drawer pull. Just a couple more coats of finish and then actually attaching the tops (using figure eight washers). #furnituredesign #diyfurniture #madeinpittsburgh
