I really liked this design with the drawers in the bottom. Made from White Oak from my friends property. I took the log to a antique saw mill show and they sawed it for free during the show on a steam powered saw mill. I had it dried by a local company. This was my 1st time doing a bread board edge. I have really been surprised on how much movement the top has done when I brought it in from the garage. The finish is a mix of equall parts mineral spirits, poly, and boiled Linseed oil.

The wood looks real nice—no doubt partly due to your recipe for the finish. The main disadvantage to the drawers on the bottom I can think of is they be more likely get extra wear from your hall traffic. If the handles protrude (I can’t tell from the picture), and you think they could get stepped on, you may wish to swap them with some that don’t protrude. Good project.
