This was the most involved project I have tried. Has mortise and tenons and lots of band sawing curves. Learned a lot about band sawing and sanding to size. The only sander I have is a 5” random orbit sander. So not all my curves are that great. I got it all down a little better by the time i was making the maple rails. It is made from walnut and bird’s eye maple. I think it looks better in the picture than real life but…. you live and learn.

cool…the woods are beautiful together and the design is awesome!
Is it your design or did you find it somewhere?

I found the plans for this in a recent wood magazine.

Have your say...
