Not as exciting as some of your previous projects but well executed and nice lines.

I’m guessing it’s for a customer?

JUST BEAUTIFULL WORK, as usual. I think I would probably separate the two pieces myself…...;-j

Hey DocSavage45,
Yes, all of my work is on a commission basis.
This particular piece is all about the lines and overall quietness, both in the design and material. The design is clean and fairly simple (at first look) but I will say that this was one of the most difficult projects I have ever built. Asymmetrical drawers, bow front glass doors, unruly birch burl veneer… this piece was technically challenging on many levels.
I will also say that this project is one that I like the most on a personal level.

Thanks for looking!

I will most likely not get to a glass case like this and there are more pieces. I really like the music chest it stands out when I think about your work.

Very nice piece, it looks like it took awhile to do, and could have it’s difficulties. Well done.

Mike, this is a very peaceful design and obviously a challenging build indeed. Congratulations. I like it very much.
