Made from quartersawn red oak, 22 individual pieces, stained with General Finishes “Black Cherry”. Took 3.5 years to build (part time). The wife didn’t think I would ever get it done.

At first glance, looking at your first picture, I thought maybe you fumed this piece. Need to read the text. Well done.

Very nice piece of furniture. I’m sure the putter in the corner had nothing to do with this project taking 3-1/2 years. Get caught up in that one myself.
