It is mildly irritating to see someone’s first project looking so good! LOL

Great job. What kind of wood is that? You did an excellent job of showing off the grain pattern.

My grandfather had a bunch of wood that he had left in the basment. After he past it had 10 years to dry this one was labled willow.
