During these past few weeks of classes, I've been spending a lot of time in the wood shop. This is why:
By focusing on joinery, and not using any hardware, the goal was to build a wooden structure using 1.25" x 1.25" dimensional wood that can support 250lbs.
It can be a table, a plant stand, or a stool to put your shoes on, but it works especially well when you need to hold up the ceiling.
