Designed by Chris Schwarz (from Woodworking Magazine a few years ago), based on the furniture of Gustav Stickley. Made of Quartersawn White Oak, finished with stain/danish oil/amber shellac/and polyurethane. Green mable tile in the center. This was an interesting project, I spent alot of time cutting the pieces out so the grain ran straight across or straight up and down on each piece. I also, resawed the legs to get more perfectly riftsawn grain (for a more consistent look on all four sides of all the legs). Then I spent lots of time getting the best looking chamfers I could on the tops of the legs. And of course it took awhile to get clean thru mortises for the lower stretcher and tusk tenon.
thanks for looking
