Made this for my Dad for Christmas. The frame is made out of Cherry. I needed the frame to be not so red so I did give the cherry some stain, which gave it some minor blotching, the frame turned out nice. The scroll work has over 200 cuts, made out of birch plywood. It was fun to make! Evidentially have more patience than I thought!

-- Curly, South Dakota! Now where did I put that board stretcher?
