This is a custom piece I designed and built for local couple that had a penchant for mission style furniture. Nothing to elaborate, but an overall pretty authentic looking piece, I think. Hand selected aged cherry was used, defects slightly enhanced to add aging.

Nicely done! I like the arch and the way the pieces step down from each other.
