This was constructed as a birthday present for my mother. This is my first rail/stile project and is made from radiata pine. There is no metal hardware on this build, only loose tenon joinery. No stain (except for a walnut stain on the lettering) just a satin poly coat for protection. All rails/stiles are laminated 1-1/2” with 1/2” panels on inset dados.

I like the idea of the letters on top. Looks cool.

Thanks! The letters were a last minute idea, just happened to see them out shopping and figured why not? Would have loved to inlay them, but im just not there yet.
