My apologies for the poor pictures.
Everything is solid walnut except for the quilted maple panels.
The back of the top cabinet is book-matched walnut but the LED light strips make it seem yellow. If you think the top cabinet is a different color than the bottom cabinet it is only because it took me so long to finish the top.
Everything is finished with a shellac sealing coat and then Minwax brushing lacquer- several coats of full gloss and a final coat of semi-gloss.

This is a beautiful cabinet – any chance you have more pictures to share? The grain on the quilted door panels looks great with the walnut. How did you achieve the profiles on the doors on the bottom cabinet.

Thanks for sharing.

Many thanks for all your kind comments.

For Bill – the door frames were shaped with Jesada (that dates me!) ogee rail and stile cutters. The panels were raised with an Amana shaper cutter and the quilted maple was resawn at 1/16”, book matched, let into the solid walnut panels and edged with ebonized maple beads.
