I have spent most of my personal project time over the last year and a bit making this. I would get a bit done, then have to put it aside for various reasons. But I finally got it done. I made this starting from a 8/4 chunk and used mostly hand tools to make it.

You can click on my blog posts to see the entire 17 part building process.

The wood is curly maple and I used aniline dye and shellac for the finish.

Thanks for looking

Excellent work and great craftsmanship. This is beautiful. Does it have any traditional secret compartments?
