Walnut with Sycamore and Bloodwood accents. The finish is my usual BLO, buffed out on my three-wheel system.

Nice one Charlie.
Looks like really tight joinery. And I like the accents.

Yeah, it’s way too hot to spend anything more than short periods of time out there. Make a few cuts… come in and suck down some air conditioning. :-)
