So here is the cabinet top and the book case that goes with the base cabinet I made as part of a project for a customer. The picture above is the finished piece prior to being lacqured. The second picture is the bare cabinet without top or book case. The third image is the back panel scribed ti fit the two tiered mantel. Fourth image is the “rabbitting” for the shelves. There are a few screws and some dowels but non of them are visible.
Thanks for looking

This is a photo of the clamp monster,

and the plane that helpped me make the top smooth.

The third picture is the unit out side read to be taken apart and sprayed

I love the stair step of the shelves, makes for a artful piece.

Thanks guys,
Rweitz, I was going to call this a craftsman style but the staggered shelves don’t fit in that category.
