That came out nice Ken.  That should go well with the Barrister Bookcase.  Very well done.

Very well done Mr Cooper, everything looks right on, those woods look so good together, you aged the cherry in the sun if I remember and wasn’t there going to be an antique door knob in there somewhere or did that get dropped from the design?

Thank you sir. Yes, I moved it in and out of doors several days and put in in front of a light that Steve recommenced, at night, to darken it. The snow on the ground here sure helped to reflect the sunlight :). DIL hasn’t mentioned the door knob again and I haven’t reminded her of it. I just need to get it out my shop so I can move down the road to the next project.

Almost had heart failure.  Saw the first picture from Pinterest, then saw your "Here is the door without a finish" picture, and I thought you were going to paint it white!

Very nice finished product - always good to score points with the DIL!

In that case, I’m almost inclined to build another and paint it white, just to get some of you guys down here to share a soft drink or so!

Fajitas, cold beer, ice tea and good cigars. Take your pick. Since it looks like Amana isn’t going to happen this year, let’s pick a place to gather.  Spanky’s front yard?

Now that is a damn good place to meet, bring a truck and trailer.  You can't lose.  The only problem is, Spanky's not much of a drinker, but he does have a beard.

Coop, the hall tree looks magnificent! I wouldn't remind the DIL about the doorknob, either. Looks too good without it.

I had never heard the term "hall tree" before. Now I can rename a piece I recently built. I previously called mine "a sort of tall settle". A rose by any other name ...

PS: Mine is made of pine and will be painted, just as soon as SWMBO decides on color. Yours has a lot more class.

Coop your hall tree looks good.

Everyone would be welcome. But they will be no beer cans or whiskey bottles in my front yard. Ole spanky has never licked on a beer can top or a whiskey bottle neck. 

Give me a heads up so I can have some Rainbow poplar cut for Dave.

That came out great Coop.  Wish I had somewhere to put a hall tree as the LOML has wanted one for years.
