This was a fun build. Dovetail joinery on the main body, and box joints on the drawers. Each drawer has its own gold plated keyed lock. Installing the handles on the sides was a challenge. In retrospect, I wish I had used a sliding dovetail on the center section. Clear poly finishes it off. I hope y’all enjoy it, and comments (as well as critiques) are certainly welcome.

Tough to critique that. Beautiful work. I too love walnut.

My only critique is on the quality of the photos. It does look like very fine work, though.

I agree with BTimmons, but it is correctable. I think more light would help. I will put it in my favorites anyway.

Yeah I’m not much of a photog. These are actually pictures the customer sent me, they always seem to look better in the customer’s home. Here are some shop photos I took before delivery:
