I started this project last fall and I promised the guy who purchased it that it would be done within a month, that did not happen. I wasn’t sure of exactly how I wanted this to end up looking in the end so I kept changing directions mid-project. The future owner came over a few times and wanted certain changes as well. He is very happy now and assures me that it was worth the wait. All that said, I am happy with the result now that the finish is cooperating. Maple with bloodwood and purpleheart accents. The interior removable tote-thing is all poplar which will be used to hold his airbrush supplies.
