As you all know i like greene & greene style. Made from walnut,butternut.maple, red oak and sassafras.Made the center compartment to hang jewelry on pull out rods. Made one side of drawers dovetails i think it looks better.

as always david, you have made a beautiful piece that will be an heirloom piece for your family, this one is amazing, the walnut and butternut mixture is so complimentry to one another, great contrast, i think the drawer knobs make it look on art deco side…you might consider changing those in order to have it more green and green, if you want an expert opinion, then ask darrell peart, here is his link, http://lumberjocks.com/Darrell just trying to be helpful if you want to just ask him, he is the G and G expert..
