Fitzus Me Fecit, MMXI

I made this little X-legged table as a learning project in my joinery/cabinetmaking course. The wood is pink birch, quite an attractive tropical hardwood (and the product of sustainable forestry, so Not Evil like a lot of other tropical timbers), and the central section is formica-covered laminated MDF.

It's the perfect size for sitting at on a bolster or in seiza on the floor, and I think I'll get a lot of use out of it. It's very, very sturdy, and could easily double as a stool too.

I'm really enjoying this course; I like working with wood, and I just love making stuff.

Majestic Chin

Found this doodle in amongst a bunch of old lecture notes.
It must have been a bit of a dull lecture.
