Bowed Front Buffet

Finally completed and just needs a final coat of wax, then it will be delivered.

Walnut … solids and shop made veneers; plywood panels on ends and back
Bending ply for the bowed drawer front and doors, veneered with shop made walnut, solid wood edged
Regular ply for the straight drawer fronts and doors … all solid wood edged and veneer inside and out
bottom shelves are veneered and solid wood edged plywood as well
Top is solid walnut edge banded, ply wood center with shop made walnut veneer on top
Bottom curves are bent lamination … I tried steam bending and had no luck … wood is too dry starting out .. <7%
Dovetail side drawers and doweled center bowed drawer all with sliding dovetail drawer slides, center mounted
SOSS invisible hinges, polished chrome hardware, stainless steel collars on bottom of legs
Transtint dye, shellac sealer and General Finishes semi-gloss topcoat … many coats
Lots of fun and learned some new techniques for sure.

Thanks for looking. It should make for a nice compliment to the table I make a while back. Sorry for the sideways pics … not that way on my computer and cannot explain how they got rotated.

FINAL Update: buffet is delivered and now part of the dining room set. I think it goes well with my table and the china hutch/chairs my son/daughter in-law purchased.

Thanks for looking.
