Curly Cherry and Curly Maple kitchen hutch I built for my wife. Included are hand planed door and side panels, tinted with early american maple tint. Stands a little under 6’8” tall and 36” wide. Inside has 3/4” Maple ply shelving and few secret compartments for stuff. Top is curly Maple with about 10 hand rubbed coats of high gloss poly. Cabinet was a fun build and I have a few people asking about one, but with a very small shop I am not sure I want to tackle another one anytime soon. A few hand done bead and cove elements here and there(sorry they are subtle and hard to photograph). Questions, comments and critiques are always welcome and thanks for looking.

Hardest thing about working with figured woods is getting decent pictures of it when finished. Very nice : )

Very nice hutch, great craftsmanship on this build. I think I can see that the raised panels were planed by hand, do you have a panel raising plane?, or use another method. In any event, they look great.

Oldtool, just a guide board to keep my lines straight and a collection of hand planes is all I used. And thank you all of the kind words!
