First project?!*?
You are going to go far my friend.
I like the figure in that oak, is it white oak?

Do you care to share your finishing recipe, is it perhaps dye?

Thanks for sharing, and looking forward to your next post.

Beautiful piece, I love A&C. This is more like an armoire, what with all those cute little tops (dresses?) in the top shelf.

Fantastic craftsmanship and attention to detail, a great piece indeed. It will be a heirloom my friend, passed down for generations.
