Example text

Start out by cutting the top and two side pieces to length from the 1×4 piece. Leave them full width (3½″) for now. Then cut the bottom piece to length from the 1×2. The frame is assembled with pocket screws, though some of the locations need to be carefully placed. When I tried to space two pocket screws in the sides, running up into the top piece, I ran out of space to allow the “pocket” created by the pocket screw bit. I wanted two screws at that joint to keep the sides flat, and I was only using one screw at the bottom joint.

One of Stickley's concepts was to offer quality furniture at a price that the average man could afford. In the catalogue, the No. 602 Taboret was going for $3. That certainly seems appropriately priced for the average man. But when you stop to remember the cost of living in 1910 (take-home pay was around $15 a week), that $3 starts to feel like buying a leather sofa these days. Happily, we can recreate Gus' round-top taboret for a minimum of expense, thereby fulfilling his dream of affordable furniture for the average man.
