Guess what it is! I’ll add clues as needed.

1) Made of cherry, maple, walnut pulls, mahogany shelves, plywood back.
2) Finished with danish oil and shellac.
3) about 43” wide, 7” deep, total height about 8”.

This was a fun project. It’s heavy, and the top portion is removable for cleaning purposes. 80 holes drilled. Top row of holes are 1”, and vertical. Other holes are 3/4, 5/8, and 3/8, slanted at about an 18 degree angle to the right. It was kinda cool spacing them out so they all ended up evenly.

Drawers are cherry and maple fronts made with box joints.

First time EVER using shellac. I see some promise, especially in the low odor area. Also silky smooth, which is nice.

Caligraphy, stamping, or general art station. Section for easy access to paper, extra paper storage below, and different sized stamp holders or pens / pencils. Since there aren’t the same number of large to small. I’m also guessing large tubular ink/color items in the back down to colored pencils in the front.

First time with Shellac? it’s my goto finish.

nice looking project whatever it is.

I was thinking you have a pen and pencil collection, and you write a lot of cards, and you want to display all the pens and pencils… wild guess. I have no idea… but again nice looking.

I figured out what it is – beautiful! What it’s for – maybe some kind of knitting or embroidery thing. Seems like the 18 degree slanted holes must be significant. Will there be spindles with thread spools in all those holes, feeding one of those embroidery machines that do multiple colors?

That’s the best one of those I’ve ever seen. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one done so well anywhere else.

I haven’t a clue what it is, but I will say that it’s very well done, whatever it is.

This is a very nice looking fly tying bench top. Or something else, looks well made, great work.

Pretty sure I’m wrong, but maybe someone is a makeup artist who needs access to lots of different colors of lipstick, eyebrow pencils, lip-liner, etc.? Regardless, nice workmanship.
