I built this in two stages, First the bottom half. It is solid mahogany with the sides being 21 inch wide boards which I was lucky to find. The drawer faces are solid 8/4 cut and finished to the shape in the pictures. Since the odd shapes prevented me from using a router, I ended up grinding a bead detail into a piece of steep and used that to scrape the bead around the drawers by hand. All the small drawers and door are all hand carved.
The top half was made about a year later. It’s also solid mahogany. The doors were made following an article in a Fine Woodworking magazine. I cut each piece of glass by hand which turned out to be a lot easier than I thought it would be. The top molding is off the shelf.
