African mahogany with four coats of shellac. Once I got my first power saw, the girlfriend strongly suggested this be the first build. ;) I tried stop dadoes instead of butt joints so I could get familiar with the chisel. I watched a lot of YouTube and may have over complicated it by trying to incorporate almost everything I saw, but this was a fun and educational build. On to the next thing…
Update 4/13/2017: Thinking back, I used cheap Buck Bros. chisels from Home Depot, and I used them right out of the box. I hadn’t seen any videos at that time about flattening the backs or honing the edges. I assure you they are MUCH better now with my diamond plates and water stones!
-- It's a BEAUTIFUL day to go cut some wood & build something!
