I didn't want to start a new topic and the name of this one works. I thought I would start posting some of my presentation images I recently worked up for a project which includes the cabinets for the house also.

the corbels and acanthus are from Osborne. and I used the molding in the software and the frames are miter doors. The finish is actually going to be a cream/white glaze with conversion varnish.
