Wow!! This is proving to test my patience and teaching me a few skills along the way. Curves are always a challenge for me. I’ve made a few mistakes but have been able to fix them so far.

A very interesting build Andy with just about every kind of woodworking technique used. I’m really impressed with your shop equipment, but I also appreciate and admire the skills needed to build something like this. Looks great so far.
