I made this for a local festival our town has every year. I decided to get a booth this year and give it a try to see what happens.
I used cherry for the sides and the front and back. Oak for the box bottom and the top. I finished it with 3 coats of semi gloss wipe on poly. And the handle is a drawer pull that I had left over from when I remolded our kitchen, it’s brass & ceramic. It’s 11” wide 8” deep and 5” tall with mitered corners.

Nice, clean design and good workmanship. It’s rare to see Oak and Cherry together – but it works.
