This was one of those projects that started off ” sure I can make that no problem” ..4 months later, several
near melt downs and lots of servings of humble pie it was completed.
The wood is walnut and maple with African Blackwood from used for the inlay and corner pieces. The knobs came from hobby lobby ..who knew they sold pulls ..
I also found how to create a leveling router jig via youtube
which worked great.
The customer loved it and that was all that mattered.

Very nicely done. Lots of detail, I had to look at it a while to take it all in.
