Another great looking project, it reminds me of the furniture that I saw as a chilld at our farm many years ago.

Yep! You do great work! Wabi Sabi!

Oh yeah I stopped to view because it reminded me of the old wooden Ice Boxes my uncle had up in Northern Wisconsin for people staying in his log cabins ( Many years ago)
