Beautiful! Nice details. Tough choice on the hardware…something simple I think. Rectilinear, maybe a simple wrought iron. Anything bright and/or brassy would clash with the silver of the flat screen. In a different setting I might go with a nice brushed brass. The piece has an asian/mission feel but the bottom looks almost colonial.

Just lovely, I love the plama reflecting in the perfectly finished top. I’d have probably put some frosted glass, or japanese paper behind the squares in the upper part (and added a small IR pass through button) but then I couldn’t have made anything that looked so great in the first place!

Very nice. I’ll have to keep this in mind. I’m hoping to build most of the furniture in our family room (as time and money allow). I would love to see how you did the barrister doors.
For the hardware I would go with either a custom wood handle (ebony or walnut) or a very simple nickel handle.

I’ll agree with Lee, well done! Because of the simple straight line in this piece I would probably incorporate a walnut finger pull almost the length of each drawer located along the lower edge of each drawer. Maybe a little larger than the horizontal slates in the doors. 1” X 1” with the finger pull cut out of the back side 1/2” X 1/2”. That’s just my opinion without seeing it in person. Thanks for sharing.

You have a good eye for design, and a good hand for detail, you are going to be a wood worker trend setter.
