Made of American Elm. It’s 86” tall, 45” wide and 23” deep.

This is one of “those” projects that seemed to be a problem at every turn.

Full extention, self-closing drawer slides.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

I thought it looked great without the doors. The doors really bring it together.

This is definitely one of your best pieces. How do you know that is American and not Red elm ? Just curious as I have cut both and I never can tell which from looking at the log.

Actually, I guess I am not sure. I can tell between American and Siberian elm. I have always been told that all of ours is one of those 2.
