Woods are PNW Bigleaf quilted maple and Black Walnut.

Finish on the maple is bright yellow and dark red mahogany dye, 5 coats garnet shellac,and 4 coats orange.Dark walnut danish oil on the walnut followed by 3 coats garnet and 4 coats orange shellac.

pics are from my phone ,apologize for the quality.
Questions comments welcome.

how did you cut the miters? They are very crisp. Very nicely done.
