My wife owns several dozen of these ceramic bears and needs a couple of curios to store them.
This is the newest addition.

The piece stands 30” tall and 48” wide, all solid oak.
The finish is Minwax Early American stain with a Deft semi gloss sprayed on.

The whole project is built around the etched, brass and glass panel in the door.

I managed to cut the rest of the glass for the windows and shelf and the mirror back without damage to myself.
