Could have benefited from a broader commentary. Good use of sources and well written section on construction. I would like to see more on this style of construction.

Creativity (0-4): 1.5

Hard piece to be creative with. There are some things you could have done to up your score. Possibly carving the posts with motifs from period.

Creativity (0-4): 2.5

Logical combination of elements. Some interpretation to style.

Creativity (0-4): 3.5

Would love to see more complexity in the turned portions.

Judge's Observation (0-6): 4.5

Good piece. Well done. Good sources. Very simple, elegant, and utilitarian. Score would have been helped by using more period construction methods (without the use of power tools). You recognize what they would have used.

Judge's Observation (0-6): 4

Very nice, tight piece. Very well made.

Judge's Observation (0-6): 6

Nice and solid. Would make a fine addition in with my own furniture.
