After one year and thousands of dollars in tools and lots of wood thrown on the pile, I finally built something worth posting about. It's all cherry, except a piece of cheap ply for the back (I'll replace that).

It's got a few flaws. The obvious -- I screwed up the center divider so, at the moment, it's ply. I thought it would take the stain a little better. But I plan on replacing it anyway.

I'm not good at mitering corners yet. In time.

Thanks a nice piece of work, Stone. FWIW, stain tends to be difficult if you're using multiple pieces of wood. Different boards absorb stain at different rates, even when they're both oak, both cherry, etc.

Nice work, Stone.

Not to mention the different absorption rates of end grain & face grain. For consistency, some people use a sanding sealer (or end grain sealer). It's clear & soaks into the wood to fill in the pores, providing a more even surface (pore-wise) for the stains to follow. I've never bothered with it though.

I'm not good at mitering corners yet. In time.

If the two pieces to miter are the same width, then consider something like this Miter Saddle.

Stone, that's lovely.
