Awesome design, especialy those thin walnut stripes on top edges of compartments. Sure better than plastic.

I agree this is a great design, I think the thin strips might be the bloodwood.

Well done.

Very nice I like everything about it especially the arts and crafts feel but with a lil Asian flair similar to G&G. I will hav to fav these and make something similar for the wife’s desk. Good stuff!!!

This is a beautiful design! I’m gonna have to copy you—apologies up front. My wife has been asking for something like this. Now, I have no excuses…

Lefty,

No problems with that. You don’t have to do this but I tapered the back side of each leg in addition to the curved side of the legs. Then I notched out non-parallel mortises in the shelves. In the end, the shelves get kind of wedged into place and are held with glue.

Have your say...
