xplorx4 Harry that would be an honor, the two front pieces are dadoed (sp) into the sides then rounded over. That was the part I wasn't sure about. I only started to do the seriously last spring with refinishing and got more serious with the two tier table and now I really would like to build things. My dad was something else with his hands and I would like to think maybe some of that was instilled in me. A while back I posted this ship that he did as a Jr in high school. I am so blessed to have this because ever thing else he made was neglected and destroyed.

These two black tables are what I made to give to Martha at the church in exchange for the maple table. Its a long story, but the maple table was to have been painted like these two.

xplorx4 You know sometimes it is funny how things happen, All I was going to do was get a handle on how to make the cuts dadoes and round overs the thing went together so well and was the perfect size for the incoming mail. Just a little thing like that can teach a guy some good lessons, like finish the inside before assembly because you can't reach it later.

Mock up for Magazine rack that got used for mail

The attached letter rack started out as a mock up for a magazine rack that I have yet to do. I painted it because it is made up of scrap wood. The purpose was to learn what I could on doing the datto's and round overs etc. on some scraps before getting some oak or some other wood to build the full size rack on. I was going to just toss it aside when my wife asked why it couldn't be use for something. So I painted it and now it resides in the kitchen to put the mail in until time to read.
