Good to hear from you… I hope all is well on your end.
I’ve been taking care of family and property details these past several months, and I was anxious to get back into the shop .. I get the sense, on this project, that I should have taken time for an extra coffee break when judging the visual weight. My granddaughter (14) has already sat on it… as kids do; so maybe the over-build is a good thing..
The piece sits in an area with morning sun, and the Cherry is beginning to darken.

You and Madts take care.
