I have some progress photos but they aren’t very good (and don’t show much).
This is a walnut credenza that I built in the spring – the stainless steel base took a while to get fabricated but it was just recently completed!
The whole case is walnut-veneered plywood, with 1/8” hardwood edging on most sides. On the front of the top and bottom pieces (and the shelves), I used 3/4” hardwood edging and dowelled it into place with a dowelmax. If there’s one thing that I learned on this project, it’s that 6’ long plywood isn’t nearly as flat as you want it to be!
The drawer fronts are all solid walnut. I would have liked to bookmatch them but I’m not set up to really be able to do that. In order to avoid putting hardware on the drawers (and in order to reduce the profile of the fronts), I bevelled the back of the fronts. It makes them look quite thin and also serves as a finger pull for the drawer.
Thanks for looking!
