The two stand 7’ tall and are each 32 wide. The shelves inside the cabinet are fixed and the upper bookshelf ones are on 1/4” pins by way of a Rockler jig. The doors are raised panel, done on my table saw, with cup style euro hinges. The T&G used on the case backs I had milled by fellow LJ’s at Mountain Heart Woodworks. Finish is Watco natural , however I did not put any inside the cabinets since I will be storing clothing behind the doors. The pair will go in our bedroom, one for me and one for the wife.

This is definitely one of my favourite pieces of the beetle kill furniture I’ve seen from you!

It’s beautiful. Thanks for posting and giving inspiration. I’ve got a lot of “beetle pine” U.P. here.
