Made this a few years ago. It was my first project that I actually sold….
Made out of African mahogany scraps.
Finished with the witches brew of blo, poly, and mineral spirits.
Learned alot from that project….

Well done. I love to work whith African mahogany. The only bad thing about this wood is it gives a very bitter taste in the mouth

Beautiful. Add me to the list of people who really like the AM.

Quick question, if I may (because I genuinely don’t know the answer):

In a design like yours, what prevents wood movement from becoming a problem within that tightly mitered frame ??

Thanks.

Great job!
