Great looking types woods. I like that floating design and nagled edges.

Gorgeous—I, too, love the chamfered edge on the frames. Wonderful mix of woods, and that burl is crazy beautiful. Excellent design, balance, colors—everything!

I have built a carcass with bypass doors similar to yours—and it bugs me a little that the plywood edge is exposed—any suggestions/ideas for hiding that in such an application? Just some edgebanding seems a little light, for a 1/4” edge, but I’m open to any thoughts!

I did similar doors in a previous project here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27753
where the edge was not exposed (pic. 3 there). I made a thin hardwood frame with even thinner ply panels flush with the frame on one side. The frame was simple overlap joint, you could miter it too. The frame also keeps the door flat.
In the current project it’s just 6 mm ply, which stayed flat after veneering. However, I still glued two strips of hardwood (lengthwise) on the back to keep it from warping in the future.

Well done modern design and a nice mix of woods. I think the angled edge gives it a nice thin profile.

I Love everything about it, Design, Wood choice. It is amazing how in balance it looks even though it is not horizontally symmetric. I love the internal chamfer.
Really nice job.

Asymmetric balance in and floating space, I love it.
