This was one for the challenge books. Maple plywood case. Face frame and door frames are out of the maple firewood pile. Raised panels and drawer fronts are out of the good stuff stash, spalted maple with a bit of curl.
I didnt have router bits for the doors so T & G the door frames and a cove bit. I would have liked to have a little wider cove but the bit I had had a bearing stub on top so it was a deep as I could go.
My miters are getting better and I like the way this one came together style wise. No plans working out of my head, which I think takes longer but all the thinking and planning really forces me to focus and not get sidetracked.

Thanks for looking
