Wow this was tuff to build but a lot of fun. This was my first real experience with curly maple and that was interesting when planing and jointing. (anyone have any curly wood filler lol). The woods used were walnut and curly maple and the finish is bush oil and 3 coats of wipe on poly. Never had an official plan to work form just an idea and the wifes input.

Hope you enjoy.

Looks great. Maple and Walnut go great together.

Very very nice indeed. I like it.
The key to jointing and planing curly maple is very sgarp knives, light passes, and paying attention to grain direction. You can also wet the surface just before you plane it, which pretty much eliminates any tearout completely.
Can you elaborate on what “bush oil” is?
Thanks.

Yes, very nice, I am working on some designs for my own tv stand for my 52” lcd. Your stand gives me some inspiration to really get it going for my new room. Good job!
