I am happy to say that this cabinet is complete, all except putting finish on the wood. Made of quartersawn Bolivian Rosewood which is as hard, brittle, and stubborn a wood as I have ever worked and proved to be a challenge on all accounts. The door panel is flame yellow birch, the shelves and drawer sides, back, and bottom are curly maple, and the case back is made of Spanish Cedar. This case has some nice, subtle details like all hand planed surfaces (no sand paper of any kind), hand cut and chiseled dental molding, hand raised drawer bottom (see detail photo of bottom drawer) and case back, as well as chamfers of various widths and thicknesses throughout.
Hope you guys enjoy. Comments and critiques always welcome here.
