Hi Zoltan. Looking very nice. That is quite a bend on that 'S' section of the rail and with some kinds of wood the grain can break out with a feathering affect on the outer curve - I find obeshi to be the worst for that. Yours looks good - what kind of wood is it? Regards.

Thanks Graham for the kind words and visiting my build log.The cap-rails are mahogany and it was a pain in the butt to bend it without splintering.

Looks outstanding Zoltan. Do you plan to leave it all natural wood?
