These sideboards were completed in 2008. The walnut version has spalted maple panels and is 20 D x 36T x 48W. The cherry version has curly maple panels and curly maple drawer fronts and is 15D X 36T X 48W. I’ve also include some progress shots to show the construction. Cherry version also used soss hinges vs conventional hinges on walnut . thanks for looking

Very nice. I like the spalted one best. The colors seems to blend more to my liking.

But both are very good.

thank you all for the compliments. Eric, these took approx 110 hours for both. Solid wood throughtout (except drawer bottoms), traditional joinery (mortise and tenon, dovetail). I have made these a couple times so that helps speed up the process.

Love the angled sides and how they meet up with the square inner case. Brilliant design!

Eric,
both of the ones pictured had solid wood sides. I have made other versions that had a floating panel .
