I made this for our dining room. It’s white oak for the chest, with white oak and Brazilian cherry “pie pieces” on the top. The inlay is purpleheart. All the curved pieces are bent, using thin veneered slices glued back together in a curve with plastic resin glue. The center drawers are actually drawers, the side drawer fronts are hinged and are compartments rather than drawers.

Great Job Randal!!! You wouldn’t happen to have any close up pictures? Are pictures of the drawers? Thanks for posting.

I posted a couple of closer pictures of the drawers and compartments open. I used hidden hinges for the compartment doors so they’d look like drawers. Thanks for the kind words!
