This is a design that my wife and I saw at the Arts Fest in State College, PA back in the mid-2000s. We were poor college students at the time, so I made her one out of mahogany (frame) and ash (bent stays). The one shown here was a birthday present for a very dear friend. She is from Traverse City, MI, the “cherry capital” so the frame is cherry. The cherry accent at the top is the logo from her photography business. The stays are maple, while the pegs are oak.
I printed the logo and transferred it to the frame using the Youtube instructions Steve Ramsey (Woodworking for Mere Mortals) provides. The finish is spray lacquer. It is a pretty simple design, but pleasing to (my) eye and highly functional.
