Really nice. Stands truly are furniture and it is nice seeing one made like quality furniture using real wood.

Great job!

WOW! Very nice job and the first time I have seen anyone using dovetails in their cabinet construction.

I am assuming that no stain was used but you did seal with the Rustoleum Polyurethane pictured? Give us details on the finishing steps.

For finishing, I sanded everything with progressively finer grit until everything was sanded with 220. No stain was used and yes, I used the polyurethane pictured, I just applied several coats to make sure everything was protected from water damage as much as possible. That's all there was to it.
