Lots of beautiful elements on your pieces, and I like the care with which you chose the wood grains.

Thanks so much for posting! Please consider giving us pictures as the build progresses next time - it's a great learning experience for all of us!
Thanks for the advice on the drawers. It's basically a box joint the way it's made now.

The lamps were made by my wife's grandfather in the early '70's.
