I'm not quite to the 5 decade mark in years, but i'm really close About 20-30 years ago i used to make alot of these, and I had someone ask me to make one because they had lost theirs. (not sure how, but they had). I wasn't even sure I had my original patterns, but when I found them, it only took a couple hours to cut this out and get it ready to finish in pine. I do have the 1 oak one I made some 20 years ago, i'll post pictures of that once I get some, but here are pics of the pine one I put together recently. I ended up finishing it with Danish Oil Finish, it looked pretty good...of course I forgot to get pictures of it once it was done.. <facepalm>.
