Those front panels are something else! I love Krenov style work because of the way it embraces the beauty of the wood.

The door panel wood was recovered from a local park after hurricane Juan, and yes krenov,s work was a big influence on the design. I have so far red his first 2 books and will eventully read all 5

Nice work. You’ve done well to show off the woods grain and the woods look great together. The style is unmistakeable but that’s not to take any credit from you. I would like to see a shot of those doors open.
