I had about 2-2.5 hrs in the building of this. Around 30-45 mins in the artwork. Then about 30-45 total in the finishing.

I used 1×10 and 1×12 from the hardware store. So no milling involved. And little sanding. And I used the original widths of the boards for top sides, and ends. Only cut for length. Customer needed a quick turnaround. I was happy with the result given the contrary spruce white wood, as far as staining goes. Used zar fruitwood again, then one coat satin poly, and one coat semi poly. Speculated extra durability or prob wouldn’t have used poly to finish.
