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!

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.
