WOW!
You don’t see the strips in the first picture and not needed but they sure help put the wow in this project.

that’s really awesome!!! was this your own pattern? what types of wood did you use? were there any challenges you needed to over come to build it?

Thanks everyone for your kind words. The design came from furniture at Homemydesign.com. The wood is black walnut, maple and cherry. The biggest challenge was clamping the sides during glue up since there was no flat surfaces to get a good grip. The first one I built cracked after clamping too hard as the sides are quite thin. All in all, a challenge but so worth it after watching her face light up.
