I finished the bottom part 6 years ago, almost day for day (see here http://lumberjocks.com/projects/22746).
It took some time to finally get around to get on a large project but I’m glad I did because my skills improved a bit since I completed the first part.
i used the same wood Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry) and curly maple. The new jatoba is a bit more clear than the old one, I hope time will blend the difference.
The joinery is mainly dovetails, except for the sides of the frame that were done with a domino – definitely a lot easier than the double mortise and tenons !
The finish used is 3 coats of shellac followed by 4 coats of oil varnish.
Thanks for watching
