Just finished this today. Its a cube shelf unit made out of cherry. Each space measures 11.5”x11.5” and everything is dadoed. I still have to get a piece of 1/4” cherry to finish off the bottom row of the back but that can wait till I build the next kitchen. I finished it off with Deft clear danish oil and 3 coats of town talk orange wax. It smells fantastic, lol. Some of the cherry has some really nice curl. Had a lot of fun building this one and it should serve as a good storage unit.

VERY NICE! Just made one of these myself for my baby boy’s room. I like the cherry, though. Smart touches with the white boxes too.

Are the sides angled? That is some Beautiful cherry curl. Very nicely done, and precisely aligning all those dadoes is admirable work. Very nice cove detail on the top, too.

That is much nicer than the one my wife bought at T@rget. Good job!
