I designed and built this buffet for my wife in 2002. I added the mantle above it in 2006. The wood is Red Oak with walnut for the accents.

Alan – that is a piece to be proud of especially since it is your design. I like the use of the rosettes and the block front is a great detail.

I love it! It reminds me of my grandmother’s 1800s sideboard. Beautifully crafted and designed!
