These cabinet and shelves were built for a client to showcase her collection of phonographs. The cabinet and shelves are just shy of 10’ in length. They are not built in. The cabinet top is 36” deep. The 1st shelf is 22.75” deep. The second shelf is 13” deep. The top shelf is just 4” deep. The entire project is made out solid red oak and red oak plywood to match her home.

Very solid work. How many board feet did it come to? Looks like a lot.

Also I’m into finishes right now, so what did you use?

mcshaker, I don’t remember exactly how many board feet but it is aprox. 60 ft of solid red oak and 7 sheets of red oak plywood. The finish is a antique gel stain with 3-4 coats of poly.

So, so nice!
It is beautiful. Just the type of thing I would like to build. Is the top attached or just sitting on the lower unit?

Todd…I’m not good enough to go pro yet. Just another learning experience. I want to learn enough to redo our kitchen someday. Thank you for the kind comment though.

Nice display! It looks sturdy and is quite handsome. An impressive array of drawers and doors,.

Good luck with the kitchen. We did our kitchen and two baths and learned a lot on the way. The cabinets are not as fancy but they work and are much better than the original circa 1950 ugly monsters we took out.
