This project was completed as part of a class taught by local legend Glenn Bennett. Sadly, Glenn has since passed, having lost a battle with cancer. Glenn had been a professional woodworker for 50+ years and was 1 of only 2 internationally certified master craftsman in the US. He was very generous and active in sharing his considerable knowledge and skill with many, many Kansas City area woodworkers.
On to the piece itself…

Legs are joined to aprons using dowels. Legs, aprons and drawer are finished in oil and shellac. Top is finished in oil, shellac, and several coats of wipe-on poly.
