Added some stain and rubbed a bit harder over the existing vinyl Family decal to expose it.

Started building the frame! Adding more coats of stain/polyurethane. They are held together with 4" bolts.

Attached the door to the back of it and slats on the bottom shelf. The width of the buffet is based off of the door itself. Approx. 73"

The top is made with 2x6's with several coats of stain/polyurethane on them and attached with screws.
