Looks great. I built this same one last year (I changed the doors from lattice to glass, but rest looks the same). I noticed that you kept the original stain colors that was a part of the plan. Wife talked me into darker walnut color, but I look the two tone look of yours.

Good work!

This is a nice looking piece of furniture that would be a compliment in anyone’s home. It has a nice design to it and I am sure the lattice panels were interesting to do. They add a nice detail to it.

Thanks for the complements on the board selection, but I have an advantage that a lot of woodworkers don’t have. I am a hardwoods lumber inpector at a rather large sawmill so I get the pick of the whole cut. I find myself almost always in shopping mode. When I see a nice board I’ll set it aside and buy it at a later time.

Karl – the plan for this came out of an issue of Woodsmith magazine. click this link to take you straight to it.
