This is my first major piece and was supposed to be ready for the birth of my first son. Unfortunately he got it 6 months late!
Laminated Silver Ash veneer with bendy-ply core, I found the challenge with this piece to be making all the jigs to form and cut the pieces. I counted the hours and it took me around 160 hours part time over 8 months to make.
I finished it with a organic toy-grade floor varnish and natural wax as the last coat for the sheen.
My next piece is going to be a box with no curves what-so-ever!!
