Only two years in the making, this armoire is a mahogany beast. The door panels are crotch veneer, and the top, rails, stiles, and drawer fronts are QS African Mahogany. The door pulls, legs and apron are all cocobolo.

Jeremy, simply put, what you have done here is build a beautiful piece of furniture that really stands out.
