That is the most lively burl I’ve ever seen and it is very well showcased here. I think you must have done an excellent job on the finish too to get so much grain detail out of those panels.

Thanks, fellas. The maple burl is a veneer from Certainly Wood. It’s finished with boiled linseed oil, with lacquer on top.

Beautiful in all aspects – design, craftsmanship, wood contrast, & especially the burl panels. Fantastic.

Thanks for all of the kind words! Check out my class on Doors for Cabinetry and Fine Furniture at Craftsy to see how I make my doors.

That is a beautiful design and cabinet and a great wood combination. It just jumps right out at you. It will be the focal point of the room and a wonderful eye catcher.
