Thanks ,,I bought rough lumber and did all the milling in the garage shop. I was really impressed with all the ray flecks in the wood

Great looking wood and nice cabinet. How do the drawers look or don’t they work LOL

For the finish I used MinWax natural color and then 4 coats of wipe on poly I mixed 50%poly & 50% thinner and the light sanding between stuff

Well, when I looked at it, my comment was going to be “Sweet!” But then I saw Steve took that already, so how about…... awesome!

I think the simplicity and the many uses made into shaker furniture is awesome. This piece is well done. I have a piece setting in my living room that in the 20 some odd years setting there, not one person has ever guessed what it is. Soon as I can get one of my kids to take a photo, I will post it. Again great piece of art!
