My take on the Wood Whisperer Guild build.

Given that I will be spending time in the shop I decided it might as well be with the beautiful Venus. She holds my wood for me you know.

Its in ash. Quite a bit of it. And you know it works a treat. A highly recommended build.

Great Job. I would leave that third dog hole empty at the bottom, just for clarification.
