This was my first real furniture design/build piece. It’s constructed of Oak and Oak-ply,it has tapered legs and hand worked tins in the door fronts, with blended stains and brushed on urethane for a finish.

This is nice. I’m still trying to pluck up the courage to make some furniture! I am terrified of wasting some very expensive timber!

Rob,

Nice design. The scale is great. I like the punch tin work on the doors. It really adds that extra touch.
