The size of this cabinet was determined by the awesome single board of figured black walnut I had available. . The door panels are resawn bookmatch poplar with some crazy coloring. Finish is tried and true beeswax and polimerized linseed oil. Edit. I did not have a photo of the interior of this cabinet so i posted a photo of a silmilar piece done in curly cherry and sycamore

Really nice design. Like the wood selection. I use and like both versions of the tried and true (oil wax and oil resin) but not on anything that large. Did it takea lot of patience or was it not really that bad applying on that large of a surface?

OK, your work is so good I may steal some parts of it for a similar cabinet for my office. I really love your work here. All of it is beautiful.

Just to let people know I post this to my Email – so that I can more easily sort for the particular project via sorting my email later to find a special project. This is one of them. I thought others might like that idea as well.

wow that poplar is killer… but I love the cherry one too, especially the non-symmetric panels.

Beautiful! I love the bookmatched bit of spalting in the poplar… The angles on the legs are very elegant.
