Based on the one made by Roy Underhill for his Daughters, instead of Pine, this one is Curly Maple and Cherry.
Dovetails are hand cut. So is the “bead work” on the legs and stretchers. 1 coat of BLO, 2 of Gloss Poly.

won’t be getting done for awhile….fractured my right thumb today, doing Honey-do list work…steel framework fell on my thumb, right where I was holding a screwgun….cracked a piece off the bone. Bad part is that I’m right handed….not used to being a “Lefty”...

Thanks for looking in!

Beautiful work, Bandit. Love the curly figure! Sudden onset of left-handedness is challenging to say the least. I feel your pain.
