Finished yesterday this mid century credenza for my living room.

The initial idea was made it entire with wood, but due the limited budget changed my mind and built the cabinet with laminated plywood. The laminate wood is Freijó (Brazilian wood). The base and turned legs was made with Peroba that I had available.

The cabinet has built using 45º joints, reinforced with biscuits and finished with lacquer.

Real nice! Takes me back. Here in CA the originals start at 1500. Yours looks authentic except for the lack of cigarette butt burns.

I really like this. I’ve been wanting to build one for my office. Looks great.

Takes me back, too. Just like the stuff my dad used to build in the ‘50s.
