The Design: Interesting and pleasing; the rectangular and the circular, as well as how space efficient it is.

The Execution: The piano hinges seem out of place, the hard metal against the softer wood, both physically and the randomness of the wood's pattern with the hard linearity of the hinges. Though piano hinges are easy to install. Euro-hinges would seem to be a better choice.

The rounded partion on each end, probably would have been better if coopered. Then there would have been the two design elements, rectanular and a circle (pure). Is the diameter of the ends equal to the diameter of the openning in the cabinet doors?

If the wood on the cabinet doors could have been book matched (as the doors are solid, the material in the doors could have been resawn, and veneered to a core of MDF or the like. This woudl have made the dimensionally stable. The linear grain of the end and drop-door woudl be a nice frame for book-matched doors.

With doors of book matched mahogony, and coopered ends and no piano hinges, this would be a stunning piece.
