hmmm..ok maybe I will get flamed for this, but the golden mean is not always golden…the top row just does not work for me. I would have made 2 equal length drawers with a short one in the middle. There is just something strange about the progressive series on the top row.

On the piece itself the quality of your craftsmanship is flawless. Although I applaud the intention of not just copying the G&G style the doors for me are just too busy, too many accent plugs. And those hinges….For the next one I recommend you look at the Soss hidden hinges.

The choice of wood for the pulls as well as the face of the drawers takes away some of the beauty of your craftsmanship, the pulls are beautiful but they get lost on the face of the drawers. I would have used a contrasting wood with no figure so that the face of the drawers look more impressive.

As I stated, overall you clearly have the craftsmanship, but the devil is in the details and the piece is just too busy for me. Something the G&G brothers tried to avoid at all costs.
