Finished making this a few weeks back, waiting to apply finish which will make it more like the colour of the Elm Burr Panels. These are bookmatched on the inside and outside of the doors. All the dovetails were cut by hand, drawers and top (60 on the drawers alone). Most of the timber used came from one tree so I was able to make book matched panels for the sides, top and inside bottom shelf. The sides have through tenons wedged with Rosewood. Thes are a little larger than I wanted but it was the first time I’d used this method, caused by the cupping the Elm constantly. It has no handles, the drawers and doors open when pushed and stay closed when pushed back in. I’ll try to post more pictures of the details, in the comments, if anyone is interested!
