Now that’s damn sweet! Helluva an idea for the pulls! Is it hung with French cleats? Oh, and how did you cut the miters?

If so, that will be my next purchase.

It's mounted to the wall through the back to studs. That was a pain. The studs were steel and the sheetrock was 2 layers of 5/8" fire so finding the studs was difficult.

I cut the miters are my table saw with my cross cut sled. With a little testing i'm sure i could have done it with the track saw as well.

I'm super impressed Drew. That thing is gorgeous! 

How long would you say this took you? I ask because your build speed is baffling to me. I may be the slowest woodworker ever.

Well I've done enough projects that very little of what i do is new so that helps the pace huge. I'd say i put maybe 35 hours of work into the whole thing. That may be a high estimate because i don't really track my time on such things. I also usually work on a couple projects at once to minimize wasting time while glue dries.
