The frame is walnut while the panel is veneered birdseye maple, and the legs are attached to the rails with sliding dovetails.
Learning quite a lot with this project, first time I’ve done sliding dovetails. These were made using a pretty standard shopbuilt mortising jig (that I built for this project) although it probably would have been easier just doing them on the router table.
It’s also the first time I’ve done any veneering. I built a vacuum pump system using the plans from joewoodworker.com. Dead easy. The substrate for the panel is MDF which is a great material for veneering as it’s very flat and extremely stable.
