That ought to be bulletproof with that much varnish. What did you do to get the grain to darken so much?

2 coats of minwax red mahogany #225 wipe on stain, took a saturated rag and buffed on, wait 5 min. and wipe off with a clean one and repeat

Looks solid and well built.

it is pretty solid, i worked the rear about a 1/16th short than the front and installed a set of casters in the rear. fully loaded with some tools I was able to move it with easy, the lady I made it for loved it, I get to build her a kitchen island and coffee table in the same style this spring, should be good times…
