This was a gift for the daughter of an employee of mine. It warms my heart to build be be able to do what I love and give to those who need. Her name is Melina and from what I’m told she gets a kick out of sitting inside it. Soon she will understand that she now has a place to put a bunch of her toys. It’s made from black birch that I skidded out my woods and had milled. The wood is easy to work with and, to my eye, very beautiful. Each section has dovetail corners and then joined with the inside slats. I bought the letter from amazon. The finish is a couple of coats on dewaxed shellac and then sprayed emtec coating with hardener.
