It looks like you never left woodworking. Outstanding looking project!

Stunning. What did you use for the panels on the front doors? I can’t make it out.

SPALM. IT’S AN OLD STYLE BUBBLE GLASS. 1/8” THICK. THEY ARE VERY PROUD IF IT. BUT IT DOES HAVE A GREAT LOOK.
THANK YOU.

Very nice bookcase. What and where did you get the hardware for the doors? Great finish.

Another outstanding project. i do like your finishes. I’ve only used Tung Oil on one project. I can’t understand why I only used it one time, because the finish that I produced with the TO is probably the best I’ve ever done. I guess I need to start using it again :-)).

Very, very nice. I like the Craftsman design and of course, the QSWO.
