    I found the piece in Glen Huey's book, "Fine Woodworking For A Lifetime". I built this piece using tiger maple as my primary wood and poplar for my secondary.

    Once I completed the piece, I sanded it thoroughly and flooded the piece with golden amber maple stain, wiping the access off. Then I sanded it lightly and sprayed three coats of shellac to seal it; then sanded it again and sprayed 5-6 coats of pre-catalyzed lacquer.

    Now I'm off to my next projectů
