My name is Kevin and this is the first woodworking project I’ve taken on. It’s made from maple with a diamond finish varnish on it. Any input or thoughts would be great.

Well, if that’s your first woodworking project then you obviously did extremely well.

I like the ‘vertical’ aspect and the drawer knobs are delightful.

One small suggestion: try to make the entry cut along the line of the wood grain so that it disappears more easily when glued.
