so she is about 36 inches handle tip to handle tip at it’s thickest it is 2 and 5/8 thick. woods used was Cherry and Ebony. one word of note is i kinda stole a design feature of greene and greene furniture too was the ebony doesnt sit flush it sits proud and is “pillowed ” like the plugs in their craftsman furniture is. It was pretty math intense figurig out the right diameters and what not if anyone is looking to give it a go consider your self forwarned. while doing this i had to make a prototype also out of some scrap pine i had lying around so i didnt ruin the cherry i got for the project in efforts of waste not want not im going to make a helm cork board for my daughters room and she thinks it’s the bees knees ! as always comments and criticism welcome.
