Top Cabinet for the Dresser

The bedroom furniture project is complete (except for the two long bed rails that will convert the crib to a full size bed .. but no rush for these). Nice little top cabinet that dresses up the dresser (in my opinion) and will give the grand daughter lots of room for the ‘girly’ stuff. This will replace the changing table that is currently sitting where the top cabinet is in these pics. For now, the top cabinet is on a dresser in another room waiting for her to rid the diaper routine.

Wood: Jatoba and Walnut, MDF box/dividers, plywood back
Construction: finger joints, biscuits, inlays, laminates, dados
Finish: Danish Oil, 3 coats; General Finishes High Performance poly, 3 to 5 coats
Glass top to come

This whole set is beautiful. I really like the “proud” finger joints that match the pulls.
