Guess I made today catch-up on LJ.
Made these last summer but just getting around to posting a couple projects.
Bookcases in bubinga veneer and Jatoba. Banding on drawer as made from ebony, holly and mahogany.

Made a pair to go on each side of fireplace.
finish is oil/poly mix.
Sorry about the sideway pictures, I tried to rotate them but that didn’t work. Guess you can’t take pictures this way!
Thanks for looking

Very nice. How did you do the panels? Solid bubinga with figured face veneer?
