This is the first really quality piece of furniture I ever designed & built. Over the years I built many smaller projects & larger built-ins both for myself & customers. This piece includes 4 piece legs featuring miter lock joints so all 4 faces show the beautiful quarter sawn oak, full dust shelves between the drawers, too many mortice & tenon jionts to count, 100% solid wood with the exception of the drawer bottoms. The only metal used was for the pulls & the figure 8 hardware to mount the top. The finish is 3 coats of Watco Oil followed by 4 (8 on the top) coats of hand rubbed a oil/varnish blend I make up myself.
