No, I do not live in St. Louis although I have been up in the Arch twice. This one was just for the fun of it. It gets harder & harder to find new ways to form the legs. Thought of this one as I viewed pics of our trip to the Arch. Made of stained pine and walnut with an oil finish.

I like the design in the lid, how do you go about that?

That is really cool, I love the design.
Thanks for sharing.

Sorry for delay getting back to you all. My computer crashed on Tuesday so had to replace it. Thank heaven for Carbonite! Took about 20 hours but all my files are now downloaded and back in the new computer.

Jasonallen, I cut the piece of walnut then glued in a strip of pine. After that dried I cut again and glued in another piece. Sanded smooth and that’s all it took.

Thanks to all of you for your kind comments. Feels good to get compliments from your peers. Thanks again!
