My sister-in-law saw the entry hall bookcase that I made for our house and decided she needed one. She also had some beautiful walnut that I could use to build it. This is the result. I love the tiger striping that showed up when I milled the lumber.

That is really beautiful. I especially like the curve in the top streacher and repeated in the bottom.

I love the figured walnut on the sides. Overall a great piece, nice design and really nice craftsmanship. She should really enjoy it.

Love the figure on the side pieces. How did she just happen to have some walnut?

To BlueRidgeDog: She’s a woodturner and carver. A friend gave her some walnut several years ago, and included was a mantle sized piece. From that I was able to mill most of the lumber for the case. She’s using the smaller pieces to turn bowls.

Beautiful classic design, nice wood, dovetails,..Only, I wouldn’t put those metal slides on drawers. You made so perfect dovetail drawer joints, why to mix them with metal!?
