The top is 6/4 Sapele, 4/4 for sides and interior dividers. The bottom joints are a mitered with additional loose tenon’s for added strength. The drawers are constructed of Fiddleback Maple wth recessed Half blind dovetails. Originally, the front doors and drawers were made of Waterfall Bubinga. It was a beautiful, didn’t match with the Sapele. So, made new ones

did you make your doors out of solid sapelle? if so, may i ask how you dealt with allowing for wood movement across the grain while attaching the door hinges? i am struggling with that issue at the moment!

Mr Rukus,
The doors are laminated pc’s of Sapelle, I did leave room for expansion on all sides, with additional room on the top and bottom and in the large hinge hole for expansion. The unit has gone through several seasons with normal wood movement without expanding past the allotted space.
Hope this helps.
