Night stand that I made for my fiance as part of her birthday present. I bought her a pink sapphire ring to match the pink sapphire necklace i bought her a few years back. I hid the ring in the drawer, so when she opened it she was surprised!

I had A LOT of trouble with the finish on this one, and had a TON of help from some fellow lumberjocks. You can read the forum here

Thanks a lot for everyone’s help!
