This was built from plans when I first started woodworking as a hobby. Material is all solid Oak (some of it quartersawn). I was very happy with the way most of it turned out but there are always lessons learned. For this one the lessons would be to put more time in on the preparation and finish, and I think the top is a little too thick. Back then I thought, “hey if I can get another 1/8” out of this board that I just paid good money for, why would I plane it off?” But now I think it is too heavy looking and out of proportion. She’s sure solid though, and unfortunately sits empty; devoid of any opportunities for broken glass at the hands of my toddler.
The finish was Minwax Red Oak stain with a polyurethane top coat.
