That is one great looking piece of furniture. Looks like you took great care in wood selection, that tombstone door is amazing,well the whole thing is amazing.

beautiful piece. Was the cove molding cut on the table saw? If so you have done a great job on them. Well no matter how you did it, it was a great job. LOL I just know how much work can go into cutting them on the table saw and getting out the teeth marks. I will go now before I fight with myself.

That is one project I would like to do one day!

You did a wonderful job!

Just one adjustable shelf in the top? ... or a few of ‘em?

Really very COOL!

Thank you for posting!
