I sure hated to sell this one, it was a beauty and a beast. Filled a whole wall. Made from red elm with golden oak stain and finished with lacquer.

That’s a beautiful piece of furniture. I hope you have enough elm to build another one.

You have a good eye for movement in a piece. Color feels right. No wonder it got sold. Your other work is top notch.

What method did you use to attach the top shelves to the base cabinet?

I think that several others have already said that it is beautiful but honestly, I can’t think of any other words to discribe it. Beautiful!!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments, ...Thomas – the top just sits on the base cabinet, but I used some small metal brackets in the back to tie it in so it doesnt fall off. I put some brown adhesive backed felt on the bottom so that it never scuffs the top when you put on and take it off.

Have your say...
