hi, I’ve been on this one for a while .I have to say i learned a lot making this piece.So , its made from curly walnut (top , legs and main frame)and wormy maple (sides ,handles and main drawer frame) , curly maple (fronts).The top is a herringbone pattern solid inlay.I used a mortise and tenon design and dovetailed the tops of the legs from the inside.Finished with 2 laquer base coat and 3 water poly top coat. If I knew how to show more pics i would, thanks for looking. This site is such a inspiration!!

That is some beautiful wood, and a great choice of color combination in the design.

The wood grains are artfully thought out. The only problem I see Is it is going to be hard to beat with your next project. Good luck with that and thanks for the post.
