There are four of these, two each on both sides of the dining room that sit in niches in the wall. They are made out of walnut that was bleached,dye stained and glazed. All four units had two pull trays inside. they are lightly scraped and disstressed. The corner posts beads are scraped and carved in by hand. The door styles and rails profile was routed in and the rails had corners that were carved in by hand.

Thanks everyone for looking!

Les, I like the rounded edges. I know how difficult those are because I made an AV cabinet that I carved the ends on like this. I’m not positive I like the fluting in the center. To me it doesn’t seem to fit. But the overall build is great, great color, very nice. Thanks for sharing.

They look like they’ve always been there. It is rare to see such craftsmanship built in to homes nowadays. Great job and thanks for sharing.
