Default Guitar cabinet - something a bit different

Here are some pics of a cabinet I recently made for my younger son. The design was taken from a photo I took off the net years ago. Unfortunately I cannot find the source again so I can't provide proper credit. The door is birds eye maple and is a solid piece. I posted the jig used to make it some months ago. The rest is cherry. The finish is shellac and wipe-on poly. I used poly so that the top was waterproof as I am sure some glasses will be left on it at some point.
Any and all comments are welcome. I know it won't be to everyone's taste.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...

Hey Dennis, I like everything about it - the design, the drawers, the drawer slides, the post for holding the guitar. I do a lot of work with cherry and tiger maple and I enjoy seeing those two woods used together. Very well done! Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Beautifully executed!! I may put something similar on my project list. Was the guitar pick design something you eyeballed and drew or did you scale it up from something else?

But--that stand would make me awfully nervous, in terms of the guitar's stability. Do you get that sense in person?

Gorgeous!!
