nice. I like the beveled edges on the shelves and the understated contrast of species.

this turned out really good john, i do love the sapwood being left on, it gives it good contrast and the natural logs just make this one really nice piece, i like the door pull as well..

Thank you AAron and Grizz!

Grizz you only like to door pull because of your weakness for walnut….not that its a bad thing

lol, you might be right john, ive been dipping into my stash of walnut here lately…oh how sweet it is to just open the door and pull out a plank…but i do like the design of the pull, i dont think there is a better wood for it unless you went with the black stuff, that costs an arm and a leg…

I like the design. Love this natural edge cabinet, great wood selection and finish. Did you bookmatch it on table
saw or band saw?
