Looks great. And it’s always nice to build something for yourself for a change. Which Joinery did you use where?

Kristoffer, The doors are mortice and tennoned, The sides are constructed of frame and panel and i used bisuits on them. The base and top are held with pockets screws. i also used hide glue on all of the joints. i used a red oak stain and three coats of a water based poly. I like to sit down and design something on paper, then go to the shop and build it. of course i make changes as i do it, this is what i created and i am very pleased with it and my wife is too. If i get a chance i will add more photos.
