I used Radiata Pine typical home centre lumber, the top edge glued and morrtise and tenons throughout. Finally I finished it off with a Rose Mahogany spirit stain applied with a rag and lastly a few coats of satin varnish. Actually it turned out more like an eggshell than satin isomething you’d get out of minwax antique oil but thicker. Anyway this was a gift to my wife for her 23rd birthday.. Unfortunately I just can’t get a better pic.
