Another example of mixing woods such as cherry and maple.
Simple to do and it adds to the over all appearance of the project in my opinion.
This project is in my movie theater in my home.
It serves as a display shelf for some of my own sports awards and memorabilia.
Nothing special but a interesting simple clean line piece of furniture I enjoyed building.
I built two of these pieces. One to experiment with the maple and cherry look.
The other using only cherry.
Over time hands down I have come to like and appreciate the maple and cherry piece.
Much more interesting to look at I feel.
This peice is 55 inches tall 24 inches wide and 19 inches deep.
The shelves are simple frames with 3/16 beveled glass that fits flush inside the frame.
The finish is natural with several top coats added.
I embraced the sap wood on this piece because I likeed the look and could do a book end using it on the top.
