Made this from Gregory Paolini's plans via fine woodworking.com. This was by far the most challenging project I've ever done. I always believe in tackling a project that seems beyond my abilities to force myself to learn more. I had to many things I've never done before: Through tenons, wood bending, cutting mortises with a router. It took forever, but I'm very pleased with the results. The picture doesn't really do justice to the beauty of the QS oak.
