Another nice couple in Southern California is looking forward to this one. It was built from southern Missouri walnut, cut 3 years ago and air dried here in northern Arkansas. It has the typical Maloof amenities and is finished with my customary finish of oil followed up with wipe on poly, 8 coats. Finally, a gentle rubdown and some Minwax paste wax (dark), then into the crate and onto the dock at FEDEX. Thanks for looking.

Les, your work is so far above my skill level, I don’t feel worthy to comment on it other then to say that it’s absolutely beautiful!

That is some nice work. Gotta love that walnut wood. I had my first experience working with walnut this weekend and it is now my new favorite wood. Very well done.
