oh no, that is just WAY too nice. What great use of great material. Glad it ended up in your hands and not mine.
on a side note, I really like the floors too. don’t see floors like that very often.

Man what an awesome Highboy!! Where in the world did you find one piece boards that wide, long, and defect free? Those handcut dovetails would make Chuck Bender very proud!!! Great job!! Also, beautiful color on the maple!! How did you form the round part of the moulding? Gorgeous, just gorgeous!!

Professionally speaking, excellent job. The dovetailing looks to be first rate and the proportions of the piece are pretty good too. I’d like to see a closeup of the foot if you can manage it. From the photos, it looks like you used a Delaware Valley ring and pad on the foot. Did you copy an original piece or is this something that you designed? Either way, excellent job.Keep up the good work and please post more projects.
