So glad to finally get this one off my bench. It’s been far too long in the making. I built it for another Air Force member who “bought my services” at a charity fundraiser around Thanksgiving ‘08. He took awhile to decide what he wanted me to build, but I started building it almost a year ago. Since the original fundraiser, we have both moved back to the states. Fortunately, we both moved to the same new base (from the same old base). I would hate to have to ship this piece!
I’ll admit that a big part of the problem was my own motivation. It’s not quite my style – especially considering that he wanted the rail on top to hold a cushion and cover up that beautiful walnut. On top of that, it’s going to a toddler for use as a toybox – and later on to serve as a blanket chest, if it survives… Guess I better get used to building things as the “customer” wants them if I ever get serious about doing this for a living…
Now that it’s done, it DOES kind of look nice in my den while it awaits delivery day. Guess this style has grown on me after all.
Here’s hoping my next project doesn’t take so long!
