This is my masterpiece so far, it was a Christmas present for my wife. It is made of almost all solid cherry with poplar drawer parts as a secondary wood. The top is joined to the sides with hand cut through dovetails. The drawers feature hand cut half blinds at the front and through dovetails at the back along with solid poplar bottoms beveled to fit in a groove in the sides and front. The drawer dividers are joined to the case sides with sliding dovetails and the back of the cabinet is of a frame and panel construction, all solid cherry or course. The knobs are turned ebony and the entire project is finished with tried and true varnish oil.
