  • Date Constructed: November 2002

  • Lumber: Poplar

  • Dimensions: 12" wide x 8.25" deep x 5" high

  • Stain: Minwax Red Oak

  • Topcoat: Minwax Fast Drying Satin Polyurethane

  • What I Learned: This project taught me how to use the compound functionality of my compound miter saw. It took a lot of experimentation to get the corner angles right.

  • What Didn't Work:

    • Glue - I had a problem getting rid of wood glue along the joints after the project had been assembled. As a result, there are some places where the lumber didn't take the stain. I'll work harder at sanding in the corners on the next project.
