Very nice, how did you do the raised panel top?

I would have done this to my new tool cabinet I am building.

Beautiful work—the aniline dyes really bring out the tiger maple.

Beautiful creation all around: wood selection, design, craftsmanship, and finish. I would have liked to see some progress photographs, to see your methods of work. Excellent, thanks for showing & the inspiration to do better myself.
