This is a piece I built for a lady back in the spring , she designed it and named it a side table . it is the second piece that I have built for her. She designs them and I build them. Works for me … It is built from knotty White oak . I cut up many boards just to get the panels for the doors. I had to use a totally different piece of lumber or some from a different tree for the top I could not get a board four foot long that wasnt full of knots.

IT was suppose to match the last piece in the pictures, it was pretty close. She could see the differences .

Hope you enjoy the look ..

it is a very nice “side Board ” I believe is the correct name it looks very close to the hutch cabinet in the photo so you did a great job. It can be difficult to get all your boards from one tree so you do the best you can How many days did it take you to build I am guessing a week went into it full time plus drying time I like the doors did you use a style and rail set or a shaper to make the styles and rails I am about to make a very high end vanity for a restroom out of claro walnut with burl inlayed drawer and style and rail doors similar to yours i will be using the router table to do it and the a Jesada style and rail door set I like Jesada Bits they are high quality and cut like butter this will be one of the biggest walnut pieces i have made from solid wood your doors inspired my design changes tonight
