Made from cherry and makore with a amber shellac and satin Seal Coat finish. Slightly shorter and a bit wider than the original. Both sides have hidden compartments under the insert shelfs. Made to match a previously posted shoe bench project. I have two more matching wall pieces started that will complete the set.

Lovely workmanship!

Thanks for the reminder: We had kind of forgotten about our removable shelves in our kitchen island—not for hiding things but for unbolting it from the floor if we ever decide to remodel!

Thanks for the very nice comments. It looks so much better in person than the photos show. It has been done for a few months (now with dust) since I have yet to get acceptable photos of it. More to the build than it looks.
