Dad was 94, and a woodworker all his life. He taught me what he knew, which I think was a lot. All the cherry came off of my sister's land. The legs are 2 x 2, were turned on Dad's lathe and joined to the four raised panel sides using #20 biscuits. The top raised panel is set into the top rail of the sides. I had to notch a relief in the four legs to accommodate the raised panel. The bottom is attached using 8 - 1.5" brass screws, set into a rabbet in the bottom rails. The entire project was completed in 2 days. Dad did some beautiful work right up until he was about 92 years old, I just hope that he would think this was a nice remembrance.
