I made this buffet using a flitch of mesquite planks; the top and all panels are book matched. The legs are maple with a black milk paint finish. This project took a while to complete but was very satisfying. An image of this buffet was published in the Lark #500 Cabinets” book.

Classy, clean-lined buffet.

Do you have any more pictures of this to share with us?

Wow! and I thought your doors were wonderful.
That’s an amazingly beautiful buffet.
