Stepson is best man at a wedding. He needed a gift. He gets to help clean and organize my shop for this. :-)

The top is spalted ash with an epoxy coating. The legs are maple. Hopefully we can start the cleaning tomorrow.

Thanks for looking

Hey you get to play. He gives something you made. He cleans the shop? Wow, you get a piece out there and your son is happy cleaning AND ORGANIZING. Hmmm!

Nice piece, How are the legs attached?

The legs are attached with pocket hole screws. Pictures don’t show it, but there is a support between them.
