This is my first real piece of furniture, albiet small. It is cherry. It is my first blind dovetailed drawer. Sanded to 220, think I prefer 180, then finished with 2 coats satin wipe on poly. The 3rd photo is in a different part of the room with different lighting. Thanks to instruction by Chuck Bender, Acanthus Workshop, here in PA. Can’t wait to attempt my next piece Glenn Hueys Southern Ladys desk in mahogany, currently a work in progress.

Real nice, well done. It is simple, yet elegant. Nice looking dovetails, too.

Looks like you have been bitten by the woodbug. Be very careful it can turn into an obsession. Serously, very nice work. I perfer arts and craft to shaker but the true beauty in the work. Great job.
