Primary wood: Mahogany

Lower unit made from plans purchased from Eugene Schultz in 1979. Developed my own plans for the upper unit from photographs, (mostly from Michael Mosesí book The Master Craftsmen of Newport) and many visits to museums, primarily MFA, Boston and the Pendleton House Museum at Rhode Island School of Design.
