Had a nice lady ask that I build her a cabinet for an empty corner of her house and I convinced her to let me build her this. Black walnut, dark walnut stain, CV finish.
The glass doors were rather large on this job so I used feather tenons in the joints. BLUM soft close hinges, and hockey pucks (lights).

What a fun job!

Wow. I love walnut, but this is awesome. The fit, finish and attention to detail was well executed. The attention to detail on the trim is perfect. I’m sure she is more than pleased with how this turned out!

Now that is a corner curio cabinet on stereoids! Well done, and obviously your own design. Oh, to have such talent.

What an accomplishment! You even scribed to the baseboards perfectly. You have a fine eye for detail. That is really a superior piece of furniture. I’ll bet she was thrilled.
