I built this pedestal a few years back for the horse statue I gave my wife for Christmas. It was pine crown moulding that was left over from a project. It’s an elongated octagon and it’s stained red oak with no other finish although I think it needs one now as it’s getting a bit cloudy from dust.
Thanks for peeking at my wood :-)
p.s. I also made the horseshoe board and picture frome. Pine, rustic, ‘nuff said.

Very nice base Dan. Looks like it was a difficult build with the compound angles, glue up could have been a bugger.
