About This Project

my first project and I am thrilled with the results. This was a Christmas gift for my daughter and son in law. I wanted something a bit rustic looking so I used inexpensive 'whitewood' and one light coat of stain (Cabernet) that I wiped off right away, then sanded the edges down. I loved using some of the tools my dad has given me.
