This was a custom build. She had very specific dimensions that she wanted for the piece.

From a pure design standpoint, I feel the top part is too large and the bottom skirt is too small, but from a fit, finish and execution standpoint I was very pleased with how it came out.

Most importantly, the client loves it.

HAHA …the client is milk painting it on her own. Turqouise and black.

It was a fun build. Pine sure smells nice.

Thanks all.

Wayne, it took me 4 weekends. Most of the down time was waiting for glued up panels to dry and set.

Thanks, Todd, for commenting on my last blog. I paid your projects page a visit and found very nice ones over there. Also, found there was no lathe in your shop. Woodturning is interesting hobby with no limited ideas and I strongly recommend it to you.
