I built this out of a bunch of recycled red oak flooring that was given to me. The miters are all reinforced with a type of dove tail and all boards have biscuits for reinforcing. The inside is lined with closet ceder the finish is 4 coats of satin Poly sanded to 240 between each coat This will be a Christmas gift for my Daughter-in-law who will be giving me a new grandchild in Jan. I think I will get the better deal.
