Default Re: Ingredients for six chairs

Beautiful table and chairs, Okamisan.

I built a curio cabinet for a co-worker of my wife. Cost was an issue, so I used a relatively low cost wood (probably Aspen, but not sure anymore), stained it the color she wanted, and was ready to deliver it, upon which she decided then that she did not want it, and had yet to see it.

I learned a lesson then. Always ask for a non-refundable deposit to cover the materials. I spent several hundred dollars on the wood and glass and it now stands in our family room. If I knew that I was going to keep it, I would have used oak or cherry instead.
