I have been curious lately about the look of sycamore. I’ve never seen it used before. It’s beautiful, well done.

I too love the walnut and sycamore together, and the shop made pulls. Just beautiful sideboard.

Excellent work. I love sycamore. It should be used more, IMHO.

That is really gorgeous. Love the contrasting woods. Neat job on the drawers especially; I always like that arrangement. Did you do the pulls as well? Only one criticism: its bad enough we’re only allowed six pix, next time don’t rob us of one!

Holy Moly that is gorgeous. I read the title and was thinking, “I wonder how that’s going to look together”, clicked, and WOW! I like everything about it. I love that you didn’t skimp on the rear panel, love that you kept the character of the walnut, love the hardware, love the dimensions, love the rail/stile ratio, love the simplicity of the lower assembly. Favorite piece in a while!
