We got an unabridged dictionary, and of course it needed a stand like the ones I remember from the library. This is white oak finished with home made asphaltum stain and wax for a Craftsman furniture look. The stain is a mixture of powdered asphaltum, mineral spirits, and boiled linseed oil. Asphaltum powder is available from graphic arts supply dealers.

I have an OED that could cries out for the same stand. Very nicely done.
