My biggest project to date is finally done. It’s made out of cherry with baltic birch for the drawer boxes and maple plywood on the inside. Construction is mostly mortise and tennon with dovetails for the drawers. It’s taken me awhile to get this done as there were other honey do projects completed during this project too..It was challenging and I won’t tell you where the mistakes are..but they are there.

This is a very nice piece. It’s certainly impressive and nicely done.

Very nicely done, great looking amoie. The cherry and the finish make this piece pop.

Very impressive piece! The color and finish go great together. Mistakes, no mistakes, only human characteristics that have been unintentionally and radomly introduced to the piece. Truely, very nice. You must be pleased with it.

Thanks everyone…I am happy and I learned alot tackling a big piece..I went back and forth on the finish but ended up with two coats of Watco Natural…then two coats of sprayed on clear shellac….followed that up with some fine steel wool and then some paste wax…drawers and doors took me awhile to get the fit correct….smaller projects will seem much simpler now :)
