I think I mighta messed up with the blog thing… hahaha ah well, Rookie at computin too! :) Thanks fer lookin. I’ll accept any plus’ or minus’ about these.

Wow, Roger! These are really outstanding! I love them both. Walnut and Oak together is one of my favorite combination of woods. You did a beautiful job on them and they are both great!

They look nice to me. I like the choice of wood used. I am beginning to like the wipe on poly in some cases and this looks like one of them. Thanks for the post.

thnx everyone. I appreciate it. bob42: yes, i’m really liking the wipe on with a lint-free rag method. The coats are thinner, and so what if it takes an extra coat or 2, or even more. I’m gonna try some of “mix-my-own” soon. I actually used MinWax wipe on Poly with these.
peteg: The dimensions are 14”Lx9”Dx8.5”H and the plans were in a Wood Magazine a while back.
