This is a redo of one of my favorite projects. Inspired on a FW plan. The carcass is made of walnut, and the veneer for the doors and drawer fronts is Sycamore from my front yard tree. Finish with several coats of shellack and beeswax

I do believe that with some wooden pulls that James would have loved it. I find the brass very complementary.
Same dimmensions as your Walnut one?

Very nice. Sycomore makes such great veneer. Even better when it is home grown.
Lots of nice details and a great overall appearance.

Great work. A construction blog would have been nice. Bow fronts (of any kind)  are not an easy feat. Kudos!

Hazem. The doors are laminated 1/8 ply, 5 pieces and the veneer and glue down over a mold.
For the knife hinges I made a pattern that put all of them at the same distance.
Thanks for all the comments.
