Awesome. I like the wide stiles and rails on the doors. Very nice.

Wow - those look great. Were they stained to match the other pieces you posted?
I like the contrast of the menorah, butsu, and what looks like the sphinx in that grouping on the right. :)

You know Rob, you and I are probably the only ones who noticed that. :)
I'm still looking for the "fashlas".
Very nice job Niki.
Thank you so much
The coffee table was made in Japan and this unit in Poland, the stain colors are almost, but not the same.
Maybe the wood type has also something to do with the stain color, I don’t know.
Nice that you recognized the Menorah, (any connection?).
You don’t have to look so much, the “Fashlas” are quite visible.

Gee, I thought most people knew what a menorah was. You weren't more surprised that I knew the Japanese word for Buddha? :)
Sorry, I don’t live in USA and for me it’s kind of surprise if somebody knows what’s Menorah.
The Butsu was also surprise but Menorah is more close to me (I’m originally Israeli).
I apologize for that

Really looks good.
From the pictures, it looks like you did some beading on the doors. Care to share the technique?

Looks great, Niki!
It would have probably taken me a month of Sundays to do that much work!

Thank you BradTheNailer
It took me the same time except that I don’t work on Sundays here in Poland (95% Christians).

You might be surprised to know that most of us even know what a yarmulke is... :)
EDIT: ...and a few of us know how to spell it... :)
The voices in my head aren't real
but they sometimes still have some pretty neat ideas

Thanks Niki. You've given me something to think about and try in the shop.
When I posted the coffee table, Cabinetman spotted the edge of other unit, so here it is.
Three separate units, 33” each, made of Oak and finished with mat varnish.
The units are not connected so we can change positions.
All the connections (including door frames) are dowels, made on the router table.
I “suspect” that I shall have to build something on top of the two side units (LMOL).
I added 3 close-up pics, so you can see also my “Fashlas” (Arabic – goofs, failures).
Thank you Rich
The “technique” is actually poor man solution for raised panel.
I don’t have raised panel bit so I’m cutting the raised panel with the left bit in the pic (mushroom) and then I’m rounding the edges with the right bit, with the bearing removed.
I used the same bit to round the door frame and drawer face.
