1. a cat-scratch pole
|Silka was a very obliging cat-scratch pole model.|
... I chose the ambitious goal of building a 4' George Nelson bench, an iconic design which is on sale for US$300-$800 new, depending on which source you buy from.
Altogether I spent about $70 on materials and some $60 on new tools, sandpaper and polyurethane to finish it.
It was a serious learning process and I had a couple of false starts, made some adjustments and took my time. It's far from perfect but I'm very pleased with the results.
