At those angles they look like two totally different boxes.
Very nicely done.

A really nice job. I like the contrast in the different woods and you did a good job on the finish,

I really like that. It looks complicated yet simple. Nice wood combination.

How did you finish the mahogany and maple? It looks great. I am working on a project with similar wood species and your finish looks amazing. There are lots of opinions about finishing these species and the look you have here is exactly what I am going for.

Did you seal the grain, did you use a dye on the mahogany? Waterbased or oil based finish? Thanks!

To David705,

I sanded all the wood to a very smooth surface with 200 grit sand paper then applied 3 coats of Minwax fast drying Polyurethane, Clear Gloss, oil base. Sanding in between each coat of the Polyurethane.

I did not stain any of the woods.

Incredible design and drawer joinery you used. Also interesting shape of drawer slide system. I like those pulls.
