Thanks Guys for the nice words-Panama Jack that was my first ever experience with Jatoba-Brazilian Cherry, boy that is some heavy and brittle stuff to work with but does finish up easily, WayneC its all finished with just Tung oil. I did have to mix several stains to achieve the color for the panels used in the construction to match the solid wood used elsewhere. CharlieM1958 TY-but I can’t take credit for the overall design as this was built from plans from Wood magazines Sept. 2006 issue #171-I did make some subtle changes in the front leg design and a few additional molding pieces. Again I want to thank you guys for taking the time to post your observations.
