As you can see, I built mine out of cherry. All of the panels are veneered with a curly cherry veneer from veneersupplies.com. All of the solid wood is purchased from Lumber Logs, except the shelves and drawer sides and bottoms which came from a good deal on cherry shorts from Kunz Carpentry Warehouse. The top makes use of the third of sequential 5/4 boards that I had purchased for the trestle table where I only used two of them.
This project actually took me around nine months of actual calendar time, but that is because I paused for 4+ months to focus on my dining room renovation and cabinets there.
