Well finished the next door neighbors xmas present. A modified Woodwhisper design. I decided not to use splines since the border pieces were stained. My unit is a little beefier 2 and half inch wide border pieces and a two inch thick center block. I didn't like the idea of an open back, this one has a solid back, shows off the wood better. The back pic looks like it had white blotchy spots, but there are none, I just used like five coats of wipe on poly and had a hard time finding a way to take picture where it didn't reflect real bad...lol..the finish looks a mile deep in person, the poplar came out really nice and the curly maple (thought it was pommele sapele, guess not) of course is always a nice looking wood.
