Christmas present for my mother, Spalted Maple door on a Padauk case, with Curly Maple shelf and drawer (secondary wood in drawer is Spanish Cedar and case back is BB ply). Finish is shellac and Renaissance Wax. The Padauk is a PIA to work (this was another almost entirely hand-tool build) but so worth it once it gets polished up. The pictures don’t do it justice. Got my first use of hollows and rounds on the door, used a #6 round to create the finger-lip on the door.
