Hi everyone,

You don’t have to be a famous furniture designer to make nice looking ones, picking the righ wood which has a beauty inside is a first step you got to do, and i believe you will have lots idea in mind, after seeing the splitting logs, wow,,, i wanna make this….i wanna make that, at least that what i feel,
This project is not done yet as usual, as so little time i have recently, i still have to make the back side, handle for two drawers on the bottom and two front doors, i intend to put another bookmatch with lighter colour.
i use tung oil to make the grain come up.

All the best,

Very nice Deni,
The wood does speak for itself. This is another classic ‘Mr. Rosewood” design
