Beautiful work from what i can see – i also see very clean joints on the corners – obviously a pile of work and time went into this piece…curious as to what finish you used?

Thank you William. The close grain of this 100+ year old pine is nice to work with makes cutting the dovetails a joy.
Finished with Shellac and paste wax

Beautiful, simply beautiful. I love the rustic look and using reclaimed lumber makes it that much better.
