I really enjoyed making this piece. It is a joy to have and use. Made from curly walnut and ebony splines and plugs, The pocket doors fold into the side of the piece and are concealed in the case when not in use. I entered it into the O.C. Fair and got Honorable Mention.
As a side note…I took Darrell Peart’s Greene and Greene II at William Ng School here in Anaheim Ca. Wow!! was that a big help! Learned a lot and was pleasantly surprised that both were generous in giving advise, tips and helping with solving my problems.

Beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Looks like it will last many lifetimes. I like the contoured drawer faces and the joints on the end and face pieces.

Sorry, forgot to mention it. The door panels are made from spalted maple.(Man is that stuff is expensive!!) It was one single piece and I re-sawed it to make a matching pair. Love that combo of spalted maple and walnut!! The spalting really is complemented by the ebony plugs.
