I liked it. Simply and beautifully, accurately and volume. If to think over, it is possible to do without waste. I badly know English, there can be you this question provided…. Good luck….

Great job Chris. I have not seen that design. Which month issue did you find it? What thickness of wood did you use?

Thanks for the nice comments. Pattern is in the Fall 2015 magazine (most recent issue). I used 1/4” red oak ply for the cutouts and 3/4” poplar for base and top. Measures 12” x 6” x 3” deep.
