These is the cabinet that I´ve been working on for at least 4 months. It is made from a tree that I cut down three years ago. It is flame oak and red cedar (panels, etc). The inlays are made from holly, ebony and redheart. I used only hand tools except for cutting down the tree. The doors are mae with 6 veneers that I resaw. The top is just one piece of about 50 cm wide. The hinges are not definitive, I am waiting for a good brass ones.
It is finished with shellac. I hope you like it.
Thanks for watching.

Beautiful piece Isra. Proportions , details, wood, and craftsmanship are all right on to my eye. All hand tools means a lot of yourself went into that cabinet. Well done.

Great design Israel! I especially like the subtle integration of the inlay. Master skills – the joinery is spot on.
