First project post, first real furniture project attempted. Used birdseye maple veneer over an mdf core using hot hide glue and a veneering hammer. White oak stained with a dark cherry stain, top frame was quartersawn, legs were laminated. Many lessons learned (probably would not pre-stain again, would make sure the core and frame pieces are exactly the same thickness, etc.) but overall it turned out pretty well and the wife loves it.
