Thanks Tom (mot) for alerting me to this problem. I forgot to write the story about this project. I will correct this situation as soon as I can get to it.

Can you really read my normal posts in 10 minutes?

Finish: simple, just wood stain, done in two colors that were custom mixed so that the wood would match the existing furniture in the home all built by Bassett, in their Mission style set. Over the stain, is clear finish, I think I used lacquer, but it might have been Poly, before I knew better. I built this piece in 1998, so it has been awhile, and I have forgotten some of those details.

thanks,
Mark
