I built this from curly and straight soft maple for my daughter and her husband a few years ago.
It is sort of a copy of one we have in our D.R. But without the arched top.
I was pretty new to woodworking and didn’t have time to figure out how to form the arch so…’s straight!
I will try to add other views later if I can figure out how to do that.

OK, so here are a few more pix i dug out of the archives!!

Really nice piece of furniture and no one would guess you haven’t done this type of work many times before. Hopefully you will have many happy years of woodworking ahead of you, looking forward to seeing the next project.

Wow. Very impressive. If this is the kind of work you do as a beginner, can’t wait to see what you build with some experience. BTW….what did you finish it with?

Well, thanks fuzz face!
It is a journey and I have a few new things to post one of these days.
The finish is a custom color, to match daughters dining table, of TransTint followed by boiled linseed oil followed by a couple coats of clear shellac and then 3 coats of low luster lacquer. Simple huh?!!
