You are making good progress. I was curious about the species of wood you used for the base of the leg. I know you said what it was but I didn’t quite catch it.

The wood I was originally going to use was sheoak (Botanical name- Casuarina Fraserana) its a Western Australian hardwood, quite dense and has amazing figure probably my favorite timber, But Now im using Jarrah which is an Australian Eucalyptus species.
