This project was a last minute idea for my wife's birthday present and came together in about 8 hours total. I'm still new to this woodworking thing, but I'm getting better/faster! The wood shop is in my father-in-law's basement which is prone to light flooding during heavy rains (just a fraction of an inch of water, but enough to see the water flow). Given the time restraint and flooding, I didn't take many build progress pictures. This is also my first time working with both materials. Bamboo is super easy to work with, and the sawdust from padauk looks like a paprika bomb went off in the shop.
