Here’s another for the same friend. This one is painted poplar also. This one was designed around some photos that he took of a piece of furniture that he liked. The grill is woven metal with an antique brass finish.

Quality work and good use of the jig to create the bow end. The router did a very good job of leveling the laminated side parts. Did it require much sanding/scraping for the smooth look you have achieved?

Are you concerned it being made from solid timber that the heat from the rad may cause it to warp or shrink. Either way it looks a top notch job.

Well done, added to my favourites.

David, the pieces were just hand sanded after the were routed, maybe 30 mins. apiece. As for how they will do in the heat, only time will tell.
