Well here it is finally! I just got it done today and took these pictures. My daughter loves it. I made the tray this morning. It is mostly all cherry, except for a few pieces. Torch burned, stained w Minwax red mohagany, and waxed w 3M show quality car wax and rubbed with a soft cloth. It took me a span of two weeks to build it. I wrote down diagrams, notes, and dimensions if anybody wants to try building one.

Fascinating, hey all the better words were used. Except for being clean and waxed it even looks old. Looks like reclaimed wood with well placed defects, as if it was battered around in handling. I for another one would like to see your notes, diagrams, and dimensions. Might never get built by me, but I would like to see just how you approach something like this. You obviously have developed this style with much time and effort.

By the way, are you going to tell your daughter you still have to rub dirt into it and wack it with a shovel a few times?
