Stunning! I’d also like to know how you did the backboard and the rope edge.

Very nice. I would expect not just a pass, but a good grade as well.

Fantastic project, beautiful piece of furniture. I too would like to know about the rope, hand carved? Beautiful carving on the top too, overall one fantastic display of craftsmanship.

Thank-you all for the lovely comments. Much appreciated.
I wanted to do something a little different for my final.
I really appreciate the old fashioned furniture and decided to go with storage cabinet.
The main material is Oak.
The detailed backboard was made with a CNC machine; I drew up the design using AutoCAD.
The rope molding is Maple. (Lining up the miter-cuts was quite a challenge)
I veneered the drawer fronts to give it a nice design with the rift-cut pieces that I had.
I used a Red Mahogany stain and sealer and lacquer spray-on finish.
