I like the idea and execution. Did you do the carvings yourself?

I love it. It is a great looking piece of work. Did you make a set of plans as you built it? If you did, I’d love t have a copy.

The more I look at it, the more obvious it is that you spent a great deal of time thinking this build through. Did you consider slotted screws and aged the hardware for a more period look? Meh, but that’s minor. Most important of all, your friend was pleased. Nicely done!
