Since this was to be a “Stickley” design, it seemed appropriate to make it of quartersawn white oak. We found a source, rented a truck, and made a day of it. Turned out I bought too much, so used the leftovers to make the accompanying server. One mistake: I was so keen on getting a great grain match on the top, that it came out the best I’ve ever done. The mistake: it’s on top, at eye level. You can’t see it unless you’ve a stepstool to look down at it!
