My first post on Lumberjocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A customer of mine asked me to Design and make a buffet server 6ft long, 13” deep and to match the style of their other furniture. Solid Red Oak. Since I’m relatively new to furniture making and woodworking in general, this was a long tough project but the reaction from them made it all worth while. Hope you guys like it. I see a lot of talented guys on here. I really have to step up my game.

Very nice! I was wondering how the top was made. Is that oak ply with a frame?

For being relatively new to woodworking I’d say your game has stepped up pretty well. Great work on this buffet, looks fantastic.

The top is oak ply. The veritcal inlays are QS Oak, about 3/8” resawn. And the outer frame is also QS Oak.
Thanks for the comments!

Very nice design and great execution. It always help justify all the work when the recipient is happy.
One small comment on the top and it is mostly my personal preference because I’m fussy about the appearance of wood grain in my work. The oak plywood veneer was a rotary or peel cut so it has wide and wild grain pattern. In my prejudicial view quarter or riff sawn veneer would look better. It can be hard to find however and sometimes I find it by sorting through the pile at the store. I have been told the furniture manufacturers get most of it.

Goodness! That’s a hell of a first project. You must be a masochist.

Great job and Welcome!
