This is my birthday present this year to my wife, only about three months late.
This is made of solid walnut with oak accents. Drawer boxes are maple with SYP bottoms. I didn’t photograph the back, but it is raised walnut panels. No plywood was harmed in the making of this project.
I am sure everyone here at Lumberjocks would assume this, but to answer the two most asked IRL questions: No, I didn’t buy the legs, I made them myself, and Yes, I made the drawer pulls also.
Dimensions are about 48” high, 16” wide (closed) and 12” deep. All the drawers and the top compartment are lined with felt, and the closest section of the top is a ring holder I made from some closed cell foam and felt. Most of the hardware is solid brass except the piano hinges are brass plated. Also, although it really doesn’t matter I guess, only a couple of the hooks were made outside north america. The rest was new old stock at a nearby hardware store, so all made in USA or Canada.
Finally, I will apologize for the photography. I turned every light in the room on and opened the blinds, and still could not get enough light, so had to use the flash. That of course caused a lot of glare and also makes the color contrast look a lot different than it does in person.
Thanks for looking.
