This is the biggest item i have made so far! I had came across some local hickory that had some neat knots and some maple at a local saw mill. It took forever to get it all done. I used my domino for the joinery alone with on Timber-tites to lock it all together. This was the first time using a card scrapper and i think im in love. The wood looks great after a few passes with the scrapper. Finish is poly and mineral spirit wiped on and smoothed with 4000 grit. Thanks everyone.
