Imade this unit for a friend of mine using quarter sawn white oak and a diluted poly whipe on finish. I did the leade glass in the door that is a direct macth to the carpet he has in the room. After he saw this he commissioned me to design and build a full size side board to match. I will have some photos up soon of that project.

Love the idea of using the glass to replace the top panels. One question, how did you attach the glass? Did you put a rabbit in to seat them or did you create a frame on the inside?

Great results.

Well done. The finish Shows off the QSWO real well. Stain glass a beautiful accent. Assume mortice and tenon joinery?

QSWO, very nice!

Did you quarter the legs to get the QSWO look on both faces or apply a veneer?

thanks for all the comments. The glass is seating into a rabbit and secured with glass hold downs. If something should happen to the glass it can be easily remove for repairs. The legs have a thin QSYO shop made verneer to show QSWO on the two exposed sides. All joinery is traditional mortise & tenon.

Nice quality piece of furniture. I like the use of color in the leaded glass panels.

Very nice project, well done. At first looking at photo I thought is was cherry.

Building projects the old fashion way is a great show of craftsmanship. I like to use as few fasteners as possible.
