This credenza is six feet long and 18” deep. The key feature is continuous grain all around making it look like a solid block. Started with a nine foot panel veneered with quarter-sawn walnut. Starting at one end, return the corner, across the front cut out the doors and drawer fronts, return the next corner and finish on the second 18” end. It stands on 6” tapered walnut legs. The raised top is a design feature to get height without a slab-sided look. This stands in front of a large wall-mounted flat panel TV.

Stunning! That’s my idea of honoring the wood and creating a functional heirloom piece of work.

That is something sweet. I am going to need to get some quarter-sawn walnut for my next project. Where did you pick up your’s?

Your projects go from simple to sublime. I like how you put wood together! Nice movement in this piece.

I am adding some more pictures of the credenza in the shop when it was completed. I thought it would be nice to show how it looks with the doors and drawers opened. The drawers are dovetailed maple with 5/8” thick sides, undermount full extension soft-close slides. Dovetails are machine cut.

Fantastic design, wood/grain choice, and execution. One of my all time favorites.
