Wall cabinet for our bathroom. Made with Cherry, curly maple, and I think the shelves are birch. Case was constructed using biscuits. Finish was about 7 coats of shellac and 3 coats of WB Poly. Overall, it came out pretty well, but not sure how the finish will hold up in my steamy bathroom. Thanks for looking.

Wow, nice looking cabinet. The finish looks perfect and it should hold up just fine.

I would not have thought to mix the species of wood on the front – but it’s terrific. You just exploded a myth/paradigm !
Great work
