  • The clothes hamper's exterior (carcass) is built using 1/4" oak plywood attached to a 1 x 1 1/2" pine frame. It is assembled using screws, 3/4" nails, and high strength glue.
  • The hamper top is 1/2" oak plywood. The edges are faced with oak strips.
  • The handle is a bronzed drawer pull.
  • The two butt hinges are brass.
  • A brass chain is added to limit the hamper lid's travel when opened.
  • The front edges are covered with a 3/4 x 3/4" oak corner trim.
  • The base trim is oak.
  • A glossy polyurethane finish has been applied.

Joan's Vanity Stool

  • This vanity stool is made of 1 x 12" poplar. Note the color variance; the darker shade is from the heart of the tree and the lighter color is from the outer growth.
  • The design is a modification of stools I have built. It is taller and wider than a regular stool and has a wider center brace.
  • The 2" seat cover was added later. There was some material left over from a settle I built and this material was used on the vanity stool.
  • This stool was assembled using glue and 1 1/4" screws.
