This is my first commissioned piece. It has taken me a good while to get it completed, from start to finish it has been about eight months. I am very thankful for the patience of my customer; I know he is very excited to finally get this in his house. This project has really pushed me and my woodworking skills. If you have been following the blog of this then you know that there have been many firsts in this project for me. What I am most proud of it that there are very few fasteners in this project, just a few brads in the support glue blocks behind the toe kick. It is solid cherry, except for the toe kick which is a bent wood lamination that I did. Most of the wood was rough 5/4 cherry, I got here in Austin. I milled it, glued it, cut the shelves, routed the sliding dovetails, and finished it all in eight short months ;)! I am very happy with it; I hope the customer will be too! I will add some additional pictures once it is delivered and setup in its new home this weekend.
Critiques as always are welcome!
