Mahogany Credenza

March 3rd, 2011 by

This reader-submitted project is proof once again that you don’t always need to know what wood you’re using for it to turn out beautifully.

Thought you might appreciate this credenza I made to hold books for my wife. It’s constructed from curly Mahogany with a heavily figured bird’s eye Maple top, accents and carved handles. The veneer on the door fronts is a mystery wood I acquired while dealing in wood veneers, that has an incredible curly, lustrous look with black veins.

    Loved the credenza, but as a novice, I’d like to know why the stiles of the cabinet and doors are “pegged” only at the bottom?

    Kirby would be the best person to answer this question, obviously, but I would guess the decision not to peg the stiles on top was an aesthetic one. An interesting choice for sure. Maybe Kirby will weigh in on this decision in a future reply to your inquiry.
