These seats are actually something I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while. They are inspired by a fabulous NY based furniture maker named Ethan Abramson. He has these stools he builds that he calls Maze Stools, that are made from different woods and have a very random yet elegant look to them. With Matt Cremona and I only having a single day to knock something out, I figured it was the perfect project.
This week I wanted to build something to organize all of my jewelry. I built a jewelry holder for my necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. All three were very simple and mostly done with only scraps. If you’re looking for a way to organize your jewelry then check out the tutorial.
You know it’s funny how many seating options I’ve made since moving to the country….adorondak chair, tall adorondak chairs, double person porch swing, single porch swing, bed swing…. If you can’t tell, I like to be outside and love having options. So lets add a rocking chair to the mix, shall we?
I’ve always wanted to install a hardwood floor so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. Suffice to say I learned a lot. The main thing to understand if you're considering a job like this is that it’s a long process and it does no good to rush.
I show you how I created a nice faux wood layer over the dry wall using some basic materials and then whittled up four floating shelves I created from a pine 2×8. This project was super easy and only took about 3-4 hours from start to finish. The job was made a bit easier with the help of a cordless brad nailer.
This thought up this project of designing and building a chair that would allow me to go from playing guitar to gaming or watching TV. It’s low to the ground so my feet can remain flat footed while playing. The low arm design means I won’t be bumping my guitar into the arms, but they are still somewhat there for aesthetics. Then, when I’m done playing, I can ditch the guitar and kick back some to game or watch a show.
The design for this shelf is simple yet functional and just looks interesting the way that it only uses two legs and the wall for stability. This has been a really fun, simple, and inexpensive little project and will definitely serve a good purpose in the new bathroom space.
