small cabinet in cherry with spalted ambrosia maple door panels. Panels are resawn to create mirror image doors. Natural edge top had large bark inclusion in which I decided to inlay copper and malachite. pulls are made from sycamore. Thanks for looking. You can read a bit more about the table at (my wife’s blog)

Thank you for all the nice comments. I am actually toying with the idea of keeping this for myself…..Probably won’t happen.

Very nice piece of furniture. I like everything in it: the proportions, the material selection, ..., the mirror image in the front. Have you consider the possibility of reducing the width of the central door elements to approach the two front panels?
