Made for a friend that also has a bookshelf and coffee table from me in the same style and color, etc.
All quarter sawn red oak, drawers oak fronts and maple sides with walnut pegs. About 54 inches wide and 22 inches deep. The dust panels are the only place I used oak plywood and the drawer bottoms are birch plywood. All other panels etc. are solid red oak. I ended up making eight legs because of mistakes. The only mistakes I made are not visible so that worked out well…:) It is solid and heavy.
Finish is Red Oak Minwax 4-5 coats of Sam Maloof Poly/Oil and then Arm-R-Seal Oil and Urethane Topcoat on top surface.
The back has vertical slots in one half of it for cables and ventilation.
I used HDPE tape for the drawer slides although I don’t think I needed to do that. Always a challenge to get the same gap around all the drawers and door but I”m happy with it. As usual I learned a few things I would do differently.
