This is a credenza I built with a Craftsman $118.00 benchtop table saw (included dado blade) ,before I got my new Ridgid R4512. Inspiration for this project was a magazine article about the artist Jamie Wyeth’s house that contained a picture of an antique general store counter in the hallway. I finished the sides and back against the wall with vertical bead-board so that it can be used either as a credenza or as a room divider. Piece is 96” wide x 31” high x 22” deep. It has 14 drawers (in the pix 2 are hidden behind the chair).

Thanks, Jim, but it is crude compared to your beautifully-turned pieces

You did a fine job on this cabinet. It is so stylish and really sticks out. Congratulations.
