This is a gift for my daughter and her husband. They wanted to be able to display their fancy glass bar ware, have a spot for their mini wine fridge, and have some storage for liquor, wine and kitchen gadgets. This unit was designed to meet al those requirements, and to fit into the space available. I got a great deal on some African mahogany, some of the boards were as wide as 14”. Al the exterior wood is Mahogany, with 3/4” plywood bottom and shelves, 1/4” plywood back, and 1/2” plywood drawer bottoms. The stain is 1 part General Finishes light brown, 1 part cinnamon, and 2 parts water, sprayed on. The topcoat is several coats of General Finishes High Performance poly, semi=gloss.

I put low voltage LED lights under the wood shelves in the upper unit, and in the glass door cabinets with glass shelves. Those are visible in picture3. It was my first time making dovetail drawers for a project. and I was happy with the way they turned out. Thanks for looking!
