This was made as a Christmas present for my dad. The drawers were cut by bandsaw froma glued up block of alternating cherry and maple. The dished maple portion on top was made was a bowl routing bit. The drawer fronts are walnut and the pulls are cherry. The base is from the same maple plank as the dished top. The peice was treated with a couple of “coats” of mineral oil and I would have liked to put a layer or two of shellac on top of that, but I ran out of time.
