This is my first project I’m showcasing. It was really fun to put together. All done on the scroll saw.The ribs are oak, encircled by a mahogany rim. The rim itself is four sections glued together. The center part is purple heart. I laminated two pieces to get the thickness I needed. The supporting leg brace is also mahogany amd the legs are oak as well. I finished it with a light coat of boiled linseed oil followed by spray shellac. i’ve been using this method lately for its quick drying time and it brings out the wood’s natural look nicely. Would love some critique, commments, etc.
