My latest project, a Chimney Cupboard made of Brazilian Cedar (Cedro Rosa) and finished only with tung oil.
The project is from Popular Woodworking February 2008 #167 with minor modifications (frame and panel back, loose tenon joints instead of true tenons, hand cut dovetail drawers…)
This is almost my first serious furniture project.
Overall dimensions: 21” W x 78” H x 10-1/2” D
