This is my latest project. It’s made from birdseye maple and black walnut. I’ve been buying birdseye when I found good deals. I got a sheet of plywood for $80 and some 4/4 stock for like $7bd. ft. The majority of the black walnut came from an antique bedframe that belonged to my wifes grandmother. The frame was too far gone to be repaired so I used it to make a new piece that’ll live on. It is my larges piece so far and took me a long time to build it.(I was trying to have it done for Christmas:) The maple/walnut combo just never gets old, does it? It’s just a deft waterbase poly finish. Thanks for viewing.

I think the time spent building was really worth while. It is quite clear you have spent a lot of time on the detail, very well done sir.

I’m especially impressed with the use of recycled timbers, the memory of your wifes grandmother will live on.
