This is the 46” buffet & hutch i made for our home. Its made from red oak (easily obtainable wood in our area lol) with a special walnut finish. It is all solid wood except for the backs.

Gorgeous piece of furniture.

Red oak is one of my favorite woods.

Very very nice work …..Tell me about the back why your wood grain is horizontal and the rest is vertical I always have my backs with the wood grain vertical I may be wrong

Normally i would keep the grains going in the same direction. I believe that i had a piece of ply left from a previous project and it would only fit this way. I have seen others put it that way to keep with the lines of the shelves.

Thanks for the comment!

I love the design , but don’t really care for the stain . No offense , JMO…I don’t stain or paint anything that I make unless the customer insists on it . I had made a wonderful storage unit , selecting pieces for their natural beauty and grain and then the customer brings me a can of stain “so it will match our other furniture”...I couldn’t get it out of my shop fast enough ! LOL Take care and again , great design : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
