Top and bottom are 4/4 poplar glue ups. Curves were cut with a router and template. Sides are 3/4 maple plywood dadoed into the top and bottom. Doors and face frames are 4/4 poplar. . Purchased legs are attached with steel plates and threaded hanger bolts.
This is the fifth project I’ve been fortunate to do for this customer.

Nicely executed! I can see why this client is a repeat customer. That in itself speaks volumes of your quality craftsmanship.

Thanks you both for your kind comments. The design is a copy of a photo the client supplied to me. I’m sure the construction details are not the same and the size is a little different. There are countless ways to build similar projects as we all know.

So the top and bottom are solid wood? How are you accounting for expansion and contraction?

I like the look of this, but wonder about the movement….

I’ve been doing similar work with poplar and mix species with paint finishes and haven’t really had issues with wood movement – yet! By the way great looking piece!
