After a number of changes to the design, here it is.

Cherry, walnut, and mahogany, with some poplar structural support for the drawers.

Minimal sanding, mostly planes and scrapers.

So looking at your designs for this from your blog what caused you to go from three drawers/doors to two?

Good stuff! The woods work nicely with one another – there is a lot of visual interest in the woods you selected.

Looks like a case you ought to be pretty proud of!

Thanks everybody!

Damian – after monkeying with the model in sketchup, I decided 2 doors would work better for storage room. And that detail on the top made it look too much like a drysink.

Dorje – thanks! I only see the mistakes (and let me tell you, there are many). But I’m just happy to have built something of that size. Next I guess will be the kitchen… :S

Nice job I like the wood choices. I am building a trunk now with walnut and cherry and I hope it looks as nice as this.
