This is literally under (beside) the Christmas tree, ready for expectant parents of twins. It has been quite an adventure, quite a learning experience. It is made from red oak with poplar drawers, some sheet red oak inside and on the back. This is my first major "fine furniture" project in a very long time, and I put this together under the guidance of Keith Neer, a Marc Adams Master woodworker who takes students into his shop.
I had a lot of learnings and observations and I would, if you think it useful, briefly mention these in subsequent replies to this thread.
I started this from a very complete SU model, which Dave Richards was kind enough to review for me. He predicted I would probably change things when I actually got in the shop and was he right!. I designed (and over detailed it) with pocket hole joinery in mind, but wound up building it with mortise and tenon joinery, flat and raised panels, hand cut dovetails, custom pulls, glue block attachments for wood expansion, and a sprayed lacquer finish.
More later if you are interested.
P S: Can someone remind me how I put an image within the body of the message rather than all listed at the end with the attachment manager.
