There is a local hardwood floor store that usually throws out a fair bit of off cuts and pices that won’y make good flooring. It all goes into there firewood bin. I salvaged most of the wood in this project.
Front and back are douglas fir while the sides and a mix of fir and cherry. The top is all cherry. After gluing I put it in my window for about 10 days just so the UV rays would give the cherry and nice tan before oiling and finishing.
The base is a mix of both Eastern and Western Red Cedar, I had some of both so put it to use. This is all held together with miller 1X dowels, walnut on the more visual wood and birch for the base. The trim of the top is both Doug Fir and E. Red Cedar.
All it finished with a coat of clear stain oil and glossy polyurethane
