Another piece made on my current woodworking course. Ash with a marquetry top (maple and walnut), walnut details on the draw (which tested my patience when fitting it). Mostly made with hand tools only (grooving for door bottom and for the feather on the draw front were done on a router table).

Beautify work, I don’t think I will ever have the talent to even tackle marquetry. Seems it takes me forever just to build simple things. I sure do enjoy looking at what the highly skilled can do though.

Great job on all the details: from the grain orientation and selection, to the top proportions being a good size for the beautiful marquetry, and the wood combination. I also like the strips of contrasting wood on the top and bottom of the drawer.

Well done!
