I will post better pictures when I have some taken. Thank you all for following along during the build. If you follow the hashtag #federalhuntboard on Instagram you will see the step-by-step photos of the build. The primary wood is Sapele Mahogany. The drawer heads, door panels, and side panels are Waterfall Bubinga. The oval inlay in the backsplash and leg inlay is Tiger Maple. The banding is directional and run in opposite directions from the Wenge keyway at the center. The oval fans and stringing is Pale Sycamore. The cuffs at the bottom of the legs is Pale Sycamore and Wenge. As always, the hardware is Horton Brasses but the finials are antiques that I picked up. Coated with 4 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal and topped off with Renaissance Wax. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thanks for looking.

Those drawer fronts get your attention right now. Then for me I jump to the finer details. Love the stringing on the ankles, and at the skirts.

Massive amount of work there.

Thanks for sharing.

it is beautiful, the pic is not showing off the back emblem very well, but it really does the figure well.

Those fronts are so sexy. That wood it gorgeous, and you did a nice job making it show off.

Wow! Really nice. I agree with the comment about the drawer fronts – they command attention. I only wish I could do something so fine
