Very nice work. The aged look gives it a lot of character and it’s unique too, which is always a welcome feature.

Very Nice. Excellent craftsmanship and uniquely you! I know your goal is to present the character of age. Ironically I’m wondering how the finish will survive in the weather?

Thank all for comments!
To DocSavage45: everything made from new material, composition for woodfinish I make by self, it’s consist of the components which are don’t disolve by water. By those composition I soak the wood which is special prepared for this. After drying wood doesn’t afraid the wetness and don’t loose beautiful surface.In Europe there are many things which I made more than 20 years ago, and they are still strong and getting more beautiful with yrears.
