This was my very first project, well, since I took an eighth grade shop class about 20 years ago. It’s all end grain, except for the curly maple. To “lock” the curly maple in place I used dowels all around it. So far it’s held up pretty decent, although it is a heavy one. All comments welcome and thanks for looking!
