My first big project

RATE THIS:

My daughter-in-law decided that the combination window seat/radiator cover in her 100 year old home was pretty old and ugly.  She asked me if I could build her a new one that better fit the decor for a christmas present.  I will attach a photo if I can figure out how.  It is made of all red oak and stained to atch the current woodwork in her home.  There are no plugged nail or screw holes showing on the outside and the three top pieces are removable for access to the radiator but not easy enough for the twin grand-daughters to open.

Hey Bob. Nice job! It looks like you made the window seat fit the space perfectly. Did you scribe it to fit? Tim

Great looking piece and the twins really add to it. Their personal perch to see the world go by.
