Although I am not sure, it appears that some of the joinery in the case is a bit shaky. Did you beef it up or reglue some of it? Nice job.

All the glue was dryed out and it came completey apart, So I had to reglue everything back together and stain it while I had it apart. Then once I got it together I put 5 coats of poly with steel wool between each coat. I had to run the top thur my big sander to get the damage she did to it. It took me three weeks of working every day, not bad for a guy in a wheelchair.
