I saw something like this not long ago, but thought they asking price for the patterns was much too high. So I grabbed a pad of graph paper, a couple pencils, ruler and french curve and had at it. Bodies are from pine 1” stair tread material,various bits of cherry, maple and black walnut from the scrap bin finished them off.

Thanks for looking.

They look great. Love the finish and how smooth they look. Great choices on the wood. The contrasts are great. Well done.
