The piece would be a cabinet, a pedestal entitled 'KOLUMNA' ('COLUMN'). Work on it lasted 7 days, and was discontinued after gluing the base and sanding the shaft, which means 65% of the process has been completed. The work would have taken another 4 or 5 days, including staining the wood surface, fitting the hardware and fitting the cabinet doors.
