Cherry Entry Cabinet

I made the following entry cabinet with the initial intention of putting a granite top to match the countertops we were considering for our kitchen.  After further consideration, we also decided to re-do the kitchen cabinets, so I decided to finish this piece with a cherry top.  The top I found has a wonderfully quilted figure in the wood.  This piece was entirely my own design; I drew the initial plans using Turbo-CAD.  I found the 3D feature to be invaluable.  This project require approximately 2 years of weekends to complete.  It was my first foray into raised panel doors on the shaper, so I had to spend some time making some prototypes and learning before I could get the quality I wanted.  The interior of the piece is lined with cedar.
