This was my very first Furniture Project out of my shop. I made this for my wife for Christmas 2002 and really wowed her. (I wowed myself as well.) I got the plans from a magazine, but used Oak and stained it a Rosewood color, then solid Cherry panels that I bookmatched. The bottom shelf inside is lined with cedar and did not stain or seal the interior to prevent transfer of the stain/sealer to the linens inside. I’ve built 4 of these so far, but I hope to do more very soon.

More information can be seen here…—->

Thanks for looking.

Very nice, great proportion. I am planning a similar project soon I hope. I want to use Cherry.
