Stella's Night Stand
This was Stella's night stand before:

Actually, it was a rather nice bar stool for flower pots.

And now it look thus. Beech and Philippine mahogany, finished with tung oil. The inside of the drawer is poplar.
We've still to choose a knob for the drawer, or to fashion one of beech.

I find the changing red/gold scintilations of the mahogany quite fascinating.

Slowly but surely, the work is getting quicker and more precise, though there is still lots of room for improvement. I'm still undecided whether to build myself an identical night stand, or to begin the next project.
