This is a Cherry cabinet with crotch mahogany panels i built from my head. It was also my first inlay project as well. Panels and doors are mitered and the door have a bead moulding surrounding them. I put a light cherry varathane stain with a semi gloss varathane finish on it. Crotch mahogany panels are natural color as well as inlays.

Jeff, this is a gorgeous cabinet. I love the look of cherry and the mahogany panels add a nice look to it as well. This piece is replete with details, such as the inlay, columns and beading, that enchance its visual interest. Excellent design and you did a nice job on the finish as well.
