    Birdseye maple and cherry bookcase......done!

    I've been at this for a while in my "extra time" it is a Christmas present for my friends wife. I started another thread on here but couldn't find it in my search.

    My friend supplied me with the Birdseye maple from his own saw mill.

    She wanted a place to put photo albums away out of view....lower section behind the raised panel cherry and birdseye maple doors, and a area up above for pictures in frames and knick-knacks.

    So...it is done in time for Christmas and ready for him to pick up.



    Another view....my wife got me a new camera and I think the pictures are a bit yellow. I finished this cabinet with Laquer and it sure shows up the figure of both of the specie of woods, which does not show up well in these pictures.
