Made from Curupay and Maple. Lacquer finish. Pattern was from Woodcraft Magazine Dec/Jan edition. Fun project to work on but next time will use a satin finish instead of a high gloss.

Really love the open design with the exposed details.Challenge is you have to execute it well because there are no ” hidden areas for any mistakes to hide.
I think you nailed it. Beautiful work

Thank you everyone for the supportive comments. The grooves in the legs were cut with a “V” groove router bit flat on the table. The groove in the trays was cut with a side cutting bit with the drawer resting flat on the router table. Made for a well fitting drawer guide.
