This was a rare challenge. The customer had a antique fedral style buffet they wanted refinished and wanted to add china cabinet that matched to sit on top. The front of the buffet has a tombstone shape to it that had to be matched all the way up through the new piece. I loved the African mahogony to work with. I learned a ton with this and I consider it one my best projects yet!
