Very nice. I like the contrast how the upright is offset from the base.

That is really nice work and I am sure it beats the one she was going to buy (probably a stainless variety).
You don’t suppose she really had an ulterior plan in mind by suggesting buying one in the first place do you? My wife does this to me all the time knowing that she can manipulate me into building things like this. (I don’t really mind it though it does get me some shop time and, since it is one of HER projects, she doesn’t complain- except, of course, when I “track sawdust into the house”).
Thanks for the post. By the way the maple and walnut are a nice combination.
