Oh Joe this came out great and the best thing about it is that over time the patina on all this wonderful cherry will bloom to such a rich color oh so very nice…BC

Nicely executed piece. I’m sure your photographs do not do it justice.

this piece is absolutely gorgeous , your book matched wood just makes this stand out, and the wood is so beautiful, i have a truck load of cherry drying right now, and cant wait to start using it…you did a great job on this, and i love every detail, the drawers being book matched really give this a look …thanks for sharing it with us, im excited to use my cherry as well…
