A credenza/storage cabinet for my sister-in-law. Walnut solids and wanut plywood, walnut burl veneer for the door panels, curly maple for the interior drawer fronts, cherry sides for the drawers. Finished with a coat of BLO and several coats of oil/varnish mix with a final coat of wax. The top center tab is a pull-out shelf that she specifically requested.

Thanks for lookling…

This is beautiful. The grain in the walnut is great. The maple drawers are really awesome. Looks like a very functional piece as well as great craftmanship. Nice work!

you’re killing me. that thing is SWEET. youre choice of wood and grain are perfect for the otherwise pretty rectilinear design (not that there’s anything wrong with that either).
