Made this for a friend who is starting grad school at a later age.
Alder and walnut. Copper panels on sides, drawer fronts, and left door.

Man this really caught my eye! Nice design and colors. At first wasnt sure on the hinges but they kinda grew on me. Well done!

After another coat of beeswax, the hinges are as dark as the drawer pulls.

Very well done. I have used that wood combination several times and absolutely love it. Wood property differences creates some challenges, but the colors and grains are pitch-perfect.
