This is the solid oak buffet I built from my wife for mothers day. She designed it herself. It features three doors, two full extension drawers, and adjustable shelves. I inlayed some walnut pieces on the top and on the legs for a little contrast. It is finished in Early American stain & poly. Rustic black hardware was used to match her taste.

That’s really nice.
Love the design and the execution.

Whenever I read “full extension drawers” I can hear Norm Abrams.
Does that happen to anyone else?

Very nice. I really like the Arts and Crafts style of furniture.

I gotta’ say I am not usually a fan of Oak, but this is really nice looking.
Great job all the way around!

Great job, reminds me of the one in my grandparents’ house out in Kansas. Grandpa bought it when they were furnishing their new home in the 1920s, they had a matching dining table and chairs. Thanks for bringing back good memories.
