I spend some time on the woodworking pages at Reddit, and they set up a contest in conjunction with Marc Spagnuolo of the Wood Whisperer. the contest involved making one of the projects that he has listed on his site. This is my interpretation of a small cabinet that he made (his can be seen at the site under gadget stand here). The Greene and Greene influence is obvious, I added a top to it and made it larger, to use as a TV cabinet.

The bulk of it is cherry with the door panels made out of tiger maple. I used ebony for the accent pegs. All the joinery is pegged box joints, mortise and tenon or tongue and groove. It’s finished with wiping varnish and rubbed it out with paste wax. I hope you like it. Thanks for looking

I remember seeing this on reddit. Fantastic work, this is really an exceptional piece. Did you use that spokeshave to do the curved parts of the raised panel? Impressive.

Nicely executed, and great choices on the wood combination. I’m in the middle of designing a pair of bedside tables and am incorporating a similar short shelf under the top.
