I was commissioned to do this piece 30 years ago. The client changed their mind after it was completed because they had a new baby on the way and wanted a crib instead, lol. Well I put it to good use.

Ya it was vey pricy back then. I think I had over $1000 in materials into it at the time. At the same time in the shop I had a complete set of kitchen cabinets and a library full of book shelves (7 sets), all in production in my little workshop. All of it was in oak, but different colour stains. At the time the other two jobs paid very well so I could afford the loss on this one. I did build them a crib for the baby, and was appointed his godfather, and after that was best man too….lol
