Outstanding use of bookmatched solids. no hardware to detract from those drawers and doors. Another great piece. I really like the grid pattern on the bottom shelf.

I agree with with Brian. Excellent consideration of what the wood was telling you.

I love that you incorporated the Simian-Ping style into your design. This truly makes it an Asian inspired piece as it pays homage to those antique Chinese furniture with the four flat sides, and that is probably why you didn’t used hardware.

Incredible looking cabinet! The book matching looks amazing; very nice pieces of walnut. I would also like to see the insides if you have pics.
