I’ve been working on this project for a while now and am happy to be done with it. the lid and doors are tiger maple, the cigar box on top is Honduran mahogany and the legs and sides are walnut. The carving on the box depict tobacco flowers and the door handles tobacco leaves. The right section is for liquor storage and the left side should hold plenty of wine bottles. The cigar box is lined with quarter inch spanish cedar and should hold well over 300 cigars. Brasso hinges will allow the top to stay open at 95?? degrees.
Thanks for looking and all feedback are appreciated.

Thanks a lot. Didn’t think three different species might come out okay but I guess it did.
