That’s a very challenging project. You should be proud. I’ve seen that episode of NYW six times. If you can do that with curved wood, I’d love to see what you do when it’s straight…

Beautiful job…...elegant with clean lines. She should be very happy with it and you can be proud you made it.

Thanks Guys for all the kind words. I built it out of oak, the curved frount was done with a sub frame of plywood and i back cut the 3/4” oak every 1/4 with a 1/2” deep cut this made the oak flexable enough to make the bend.
