this is my first (what i can call) a real woodworking project (at least to my self). my brother gave me the design
and it was a challenge for me since i was in this beautiful hobby for only 1 year. i used a beech wood in this project? all the joints are butted, fastened with screws and covered with squared head dowel.

type of wood: german beech
joints: all butted fastened with screws
finish: 3 coats of varnish

time: 3 months… (it is a long time, but it was my first project and i had no idea how should i build it)
