It's okay, but could be a lot better on a woodturning standpoint.
I did notice a crack (appears to be delaminating) in the front of the font where he glued up sub standard wood (giant knot in the front).
If I was turning that one I would have tossed the font blank in the fire and started over again.
Was never fond of woodwork that's encased in a plastic finish.

I'm kinda surprised that they didn't put a globe on it. That wouldn't have been that tough to do, a couple of grooves cut in the top and bottom and some extra time on the wiring, like running it in on the side of the tank near the bottom rather than in the collar and bore out one of the frame supports with the wire to the bulb.
