Bookcase with drawers

This is my latest project. It is made from mainly Jarrah. The door panels and the drawer fronts are from Narra. The handles are made from Ebony. I have included a photo of the SOS hinges that I used for all the doors. This is the first time I have used this type of hinge on such small doors. They are expensive here but work very well. The sizes of the cabinet in mm are 2200 L x 2000 H x 550 D. The 6 pieces of Narra on each end of the carcase are decorative only. As it is made from solid recycled timber, even with the doors, shelves and drawers removed, 4 strong men still struggled to carry each of the two sections.

Wow! That is impressive, and I love the contrast. I really like the ebony handles.

Very nicely done, I’m not familiar with Jarrah or Narra, but they sure go well together. The shaping on the ends and the decorative pieces of Narra are a really nice touch.
