I had a short stint as a union carpenter in NYC, but I am now a chef and have a degree in the culinary arts. I do projects to incorporate both of my passions cooking and woodworking.
My wife had seen a bedside table made from pallets and quickly wanted one. I had recently remodeled our guest room and she wanted this bedside table to fit her decor. I used the same stain I had put on the wood floors in the room so it would somewhat match. Then I put a couple of coats waterbase poly to finish.
