White Oak Credenza

It was time to replace the old dresser that served as a TV stand in our living room with something nicer. Inspired by mid-century modern but also modern Japanese construction, with its emphasis on simple, clean lines and little ornamentation, I built one from white oak:

Not too many build pictures of this project. Here it is mostly finished. The panels are rift-sawn white oak plywood, and the frames are quartersawn white oak, all joined using dowels:

Fitting the drawers using playing cards:

Finished with just a couple coats of General Finishes Satin Arm-R-Seal. Here’s a detail of the corner that I like:
