The sections were constructed of white oak rails and stiles with oak veneered centre panels. Joinery was a combination of biscuits and pocket hole using the Kreg Jig. (Thank goodness for Kreg). I put castors on the bottom so it rolls around easily and doubles as a dressing table seat. Finish is pre cat laquer brushed on and cut back with 0000 wire wool dipped in a paste wax and then buffed to a nice sheen.
