Well - It's done
Sides and back are quarter sawn Cherry.
Front is Cherry Edge on Maple - the cherry shows but not the maple - did that to save on the cherry - the maple I used was real inexpensive.
Drawer fronts are Birdseye maple.
Drawer sides and backs are maple.
Drawer bottoms and birch ply 1/4 thick.
Inside bottoms of drawers are lined with imitation leather.
Top is carefully selected flat sawn Cherry. I actually cut it from the middle of a 12" wide board. The top is VERY very flat.
The finish is poly only. 10 coats each coat thinned 50% with naptha and applied with a rag.
DO TAKE NOTICE of the escushions behind the drawer knobs - specially made by a special guy that lives in Vermont. Thanks Tim!! They look GREAT!!
