I did this a few weeks ago for my wife. It didn’t seem right to make all the fancy jigs and not do something special for her. I used Bubinga with a half lap joint. I bandsawed the shape before assembly, then hand sculpted from there. Mostly with a rasp and sanding. Watco Danish Oil, several coats. Then hand rubbed. This is the first time I’ve hand rubbed an oil finish. I’ve always done lacquer before.
