After “living” with this project as originally posted, I made a discovery: Something just didn’t feel right. So, back to the workshop, sanded down to bare wood, removed feet, replaced feet with similar shaped feet but connect to each other by very thin “stretcher”, re-finished with wipe-on poly (gloss). I think it is a much better look. Subtle changes can make a big difference. Then again, maybe I was the only one that had a less than good feeling in the first place.
