An amazing display of craftsmanship, I can stare at it till wife calls for dinner.
The inlays push it to several higher levels.I see you are practicing at it often. My Father always said “Practice makes perfect”. I seems to be true.

Thank you for sharing.

Great fusion of styles. You have the Krenov cabinet, but the curved front is something I haven’t seen in his work. The interior is reminiscient of Queen Anne style secretary pigeonholes. Beautiful craftmanship throughout. You should be very proud of this one. Favorited!

That is a beautiful cabinet when it’s closed… then when you open it up.. wow.

I love the way you curved the drawers inside and the proportions are perfect. Good job.

I know what you mean about asking for votes. I did it and have felt bad about it ever since. If by chance I were to win something now, it just wouldn’t feel the same. Well, next time I will know better.

I told Dennis Zonker I would vote for his chess set and I fully intended to but it looks like they didn’t consider his a cabinet. Same thing happened with the grandfather clock I entered.

I just voted for yours (but not because you asked)
