This is a Garrett Hack design. It was very challenging for me and is filled with lots of mistakes (learning experiences). The primary wood is cherry with curly maple and purpleheart on the doors. The cuff banding is from ebony and holly. It is finished with oil and shellac. This is my first posting on LJs and I look forward to comments.

That is beautiful. I’d say that this is quite a debut for you!

Well considering you mentioned you made a lot of mistakes, I looked at each picture real slow and close and frankly I didn’t see any deal breakers at all. Except on first pic when you look at the the 3 drawers there is a gap on the left side and not on the right. Camera angle?Shadow? Or just not staged perfectly for the pic. Ship it to me and start over till you get it right. Just joking. For what it is worth I see a very fine piece of furniture and if I made it I surely would be proud of it.

That is a very nice huntboard—I love Hack’s design and you did it justice. Don’t forget that the magazine didn’t publish Garrett’s first one—he’s probably fine tuned the process after making several of these. Don’t sell yourself short—your first might even be better than his first one, you never know!

I built one several years ago of curly maple with spalted maple door panels. Your’s is better done than my effort. You may have made some errors but they don’t show in the finished product.
