this was my 9th grade shop class project
got the plans from toys and joys
mostly made of maple, with some walnut,cedar and pine.
you can see lots of small mistakes, but over all im happy with it
finished with about 15 coats of gloss lacquer

Thanks for looking,

G’day Mark, No mistakes!!
All learning experiences and that’s what life and woodwork is all about.
Having another go on the next project, keep up the good work.
This one has a top selection of timbers & a good finish, well done.
