Elegant item, Lew. It has real class, but what would I expect, coming from you… (-:

I just have to get into wood turning. It would fit the size of my shops, among other things.

I just finished a low budget pine dining room table for a rental. Will be posting it sooner or later…

That is really nice and something not often seen on this site.
The hard maple will last for a long time, at least until someone cuts too deep.
