This was a challenge being my first experience with curves, steam bending, and inlays.
This was made from a slab of termite damaged walnut a friend gave me. The hidden rear drawers simply use some wasted space. The drawers are lined with a suede leather fabric that added a touch of class. I used cherry inserts to trim the legs. The leaf inlay was made from cedar. I intended to make this to sell, but when my wife saw it she said “we’re keeping this one!” I was happy about that. Thanks for looking.

Beautiful craftsmanship, wonderful looking piece of art. I also like the extra drawers which are hidden. Great use of the otherwise wasted space.

Thank you, each of you for your comments.
As an artist, years ago I set aside my pens and brushes and channeled my creativity into wood. My favorite media!
I appreciate so many of all of your projects. Thanks again.

I will echo the accolades (say that 10 times) thrown your way Larry. You built a fine piece of furniture! I’m puzzled about your mention of cherry inserts. Are you saying that the moldings at the top and bottom of the legs is cherry?
