Guess I can call it finished, not real happy with results, hate to stain wood!
Another project that I really did not want to do but when relatives beg what can you say?
Approx. 36” high, 32” wide and 14” deep to 11”. Odd size for strange location!
Solid Red Oak with white oak Ply. back panels. Shelves are white Birch with a Red Oak Lip.
First time using SOSS hinges for the doors and probably the last time, think I like knife hinges better.

Looks functional. I’m sure it will be used for years. :)

Great job Andre, nice detail and purpose built. I think the oak looks great with the stain you chose.

Pictures can be deceiving! Sanded down the right side and restained it, looks better already!

SOSS Invisible hinges, also picked up some of the barrel type if I ever make one of them fancy boxes!
Charged? for my favorite Mother In Law! Only on loan so to speak.

Andre, I’m not a fan of stain either, but I really, really like your design. From scratch or plans? I’d very much like to duplicate this.

From scratch, did make a rough sketch for reference, the oak on the shelfs was the finish I had wanted but was vetoed!
