I had some mahogany veneer plywood left from my earlier tool cabinet project, and decided to make a similar piece for my home office.
I did a few things differently this time: instead of metal drawer slides, I made maple runners, lubricated with wax. The drawer fronts are curly maple, and since I wasn’t going to be moving this piece around, I made a splayed base with black walnut, joined with mortises and tenons.
The whole thing is finished with several coats of tung oil.
