Very nice, what’s not to love. The color combination works much better than I would have thought and the shelf leading edge is a nice touch.

Dewayne, your posts are always an inspiration for me. Those curves seem to have a distinction that all your pieces share. I really like the combination of colors, the flawless design and the execution of detail. Thanks for posting this!

Very attractive. How a little bit of colored wood can set a piece apart from similar ones.
Well done.

Thanks Don, I shared this at the WWA about 15 years ago. I’ve had comments that the shelf leading edge looks like a red lipstick. I do love curves and color contrast, that’s my style.

So well built – great execution on an otherwise simple plan. Great wood choices, love the panels. the curve on the upper and lower Rails, the matching curve on the side panels. This shows that attention to detail and small adjustments to basic plans can create a unique and quality piece.
