First time project post, hope you all like it. I was tired of throwing my keys, wallet, phone, glasses, etc all over the table and dresser so made this to organize myself a bit. It’s made out of black walnut for all the sides and mesquite for the bottom and center shelf. Lots of intricate cuts trying to make everything fit which became a bit of a pain but I was pretty happy with how it came out. Finished it with 5 coats of wipe on poly.

Most excellent. Something to be proud of. Is that a vacuum -sanding table in the background?

It’s a nice project and a useful item. Congratulations.

Nice valet. Interesting color contrast between the mesquite and the walnut. My mesquite usually is the same color as the walnut when oil finish is applied. Don’t know that I’ve seen that color mesquite but I like it!
