Just finished these for my nephew Elliot and his new bride Stency. Good luck guys and enjoy these responsibly.

These are done with wood from recycled furniture and due to the present state of my shop, all the half-laps and dados were done with a table saw blade only and the holes were done without a drill press. It’s held together with yellow goo and shiny brass screws and the finish is only a few coats of Danish Oil that got rubbed out with a course rag. A satin finish wood have been nice if I had more time.

Thanx to all my fellow Ljox for the inspiration.
