I’m very very pleased with the final result, it will be there, in the linving room, for eternity!

Made from a hard wood common in north of Argentina called Quebracho Colorado. Finished with 360 grit and a water based cetol.

This was a good deal of new technichs I had to learn! I tried to put everything in my blog series about this build. Please feel free to ask anything.

Me encanto. Muy buen trabajo. Admiro que hayas podido trabajar el Quebracho Colorado. Aqui yo tengo en cantidad…pero lo uso en contadas ocasiones porque sino te destruye los filos.
El banco esta espectacular, quizas intente copiar con una madera mas liviana.

I loved. Very good work. I admire that you have been able to work the Quebracho Colorado. Here I have in quantity … but I use it rarely because otherwise it destroys the edges.
The bank is spectacular, maybe try to copy with a lighter wood.

Quebracho, much like almendro, corteza (ipe), nispero and a few others, are practically meant to last forever. You didn’t make a stool, you made a commitment! Awesome work, I know how hard it is to work those woods.

Frank, thank you for the nice comment. I try to make things that last, look great and are practical. I’m intrigued to know about your wood knowledge. Nispero, is it the tree that gives the yellow sweet fruit?
