no previous part Part 1 of How to Build an Oak KnickKnack Cabinet series Part 2: How to Build an Oak Knickknack Cabinet Part 2 »

Well have I got a great little weekend project for you. This Oak Knickknack cabinet can be wall hung, sit on a tabletop or shelf and is great for displaying those favorite trinkets you collect. This 2 part series will show you how to build one of these cabinets for yourself. Sketch up plans for this project will be available at the end of this series. So stay tuned for that.

This cabinet features cove and bead moldings, Face frame with inset door, both which are assembled with open slot mortis and tennon joints. A glass insert divided by wood muntins and many other key features. This is a great weekend project for all skill level. Be sure to stick around for the end of the video for a special message to a great woodworker and friend.

Part 2 of this project will be out very soon. I will post it as soon as it is ready for viewing.
Happy Woodworking.

Laney, clients should come first. Hoping for some shop time today. Weather has been nasty. Definitely not motorcycle weather. Hahaha
