This is my 1st woodworking project. I built it from a plan I bought off the ‘net. Using the borrowed skill table saw for this taught me how important a good table saw is.

The finish is a teak oil finish.

Great job! I see a few flaws, though. Why don’t I take this one off your hands so you can build a better one?
