This project has been going on since a week before Christmas. And has been very hard for me. I wanted to do something that was my design. The base is sapele and the top is black walnut and I used some ceder for the bottom. I had only taken the time to draw the leg assembly. The rest was all from the hip.
I blogged about some of the build.

I have learned a lot. And now my wife has a place to sit and put her shoes on before work. I am not very happy with the finish. It is all shellac and oils.
During the build I learned about the golden rectangle. I have since built a Fibonacci gauge. I have have learned one thing. The leg design is all on 6:1 and it works out close to the 1.618. The leg assembly was in the golden zone. Cool.
Thanks for your time to view my project. ;)
