I am not a fan of a soggy bottom so I decided to make this simple project using leftover lumber and a few hand tools. As I built the project, I also became curious to know which side was the ‘front’.
Archaeologists have discovered several ‘D’ shaped pieces of wood, several of which have three holes forming a triangular pattern. Many of these samples date between 900 – 1050 (Morris.) Some rectangular boards with four holes have also been discovered, but I will save such an advanced project for a later date.
Construction was a simple matter of cutting, shaping, and assembling. After the long and arduous task, an advantage to making this project was quickly found in that now I had a place to rest and recover from a job well done.
