Thanks, y'all. It should arrive sometime this week. Probably the day I have a double rehearsal and concert!
Lilyarn - Nice to know you like yours. I'm sure I will too
There must be a reason Ashford has been around for so long and so many people own them.
Paula - I will be staining it. I've been looking at various other pieces I have done trying to decide on the color. I may use Watco Danish Oil - it's a nice satin finish and great wood protectant. We'll see, after all my mind could change in 10 minutes
