My FAVORITE piece...(so far)

I thought I'd share my absolute favorite piece of furniture today:0)

btw..isn't Sher sweet? He brought me the most beautiful roses!
He always chooses the most beautiful colors too!
So...This is my absolute favorite, had to have it,
always dreamed of it - drooled over it in pictures
-wished for it endlessly piece of furniture that I wanted!

But; we could only make square things at the time...THEN one day Sher got a band saw!!
...and my dream was going to come true!!

We both wish now that we had taken more pictures of the process...but this is the only one we have. ....
Here it is in the "gluing up" process ...

I kid you not..but the first time I saw it dry fitted together I got teary eyed!!
haha!! I was so HAPPY & EXCITED!!!

After it was glued up we beat it a little and made "worm holes" on it and then stained it and finished up with amber shellac.
We didn't have much in those days as far as furniture goes. We had the bed and a
few paintings I did to try and cover the awful white walls of our rental..
Here it is again :0) Every time I walk by it I smile, it is still my most favorite piece so far...Sher has made a lot of beautiful things and many more to come but this commode is my absolute FAVE! I still can't believe that I got it!
