Now they are pretty awesome my friend, i’m impressed. Great job and great choice of wood for the drawer fronts. Must have been a job in itself attempting to hunt down such wood.

This build looks really nice. Solid looking as well.

Nice job Clint! The combination of woods really work well together. I’m assuming that these are two separate pieces that are stacked, right?

Thanks for posting,

Cal, they are sepapate. I designed two more pieces to stack on top, but never got around to making them. Maybe some day…..

A merry Christmas to you and your family. I really like the way you blended all those woods together, with the copper. Simply wonderful.
