This is my own design which ended up causing me lots of problems. The panels are glued up boards. Trying to compensate for expansion created all of my problems. Still it came out OK and I made at least a $200 profit on it. It’s nice to get paid for prototypes and learning experiences.

That looks really nice. I made one from some cherry flooring I got for a great price. I used natural danish oil on it and now two years later it’s darkening to a rich beautiful brown. I think we’ll just keep this one. Plus it weighs over 100 lbs!!

Looks good and you grain looks very consistent so the panels look pretty much like on piece.
