Man that’s some amazing inlay work! Absolutely beautiful!

I also really like the look of this cabinet, and especially the pulls. Definitely first-rate work!

Wow, That’s awesome! The top drawers with the curved top, a delightful feature. Your stringing and berries are fantastic.

I love the design for the stringing and berries. Simple but elegant.

As I’m aspiring to learn string inlay, I gotta know if you cut them by hand, ... or did you use a router and templates??
Either way it’s a beautiful piece for sure.

My same thoughts as others as to design and build. Well done. I would add that is looks very well proportioned… Another detail of design quality.
