First, sorry for the poor picture quality. My cell phone is always so handy, but doesn’t give the greatest results.

I wanted something to hold towels for our guest bathroom and since we have plenty of floor space, I designed the unit as seen. Towels can be stored on the bottom shelf and the top can be used for display items.

I’m not the biggest fan of oak, but I had some white oak that I needed to use. Also on the top and on the shelf is some ribbon Honduran mahogany to give a little interest.

This was my first time using potassium dichromate to darken the wood. I used it both on the oak (it darkened more than expected) and the mahogany with pleasing results. Unit was finished with poly.

Thanks for having a look!
