Here’s some pics of a cabinet I have just finished designed for keeping things like single malt or Kentucky sippin’ whiskey in.
The cabinet itself is made from Southern Mahogany, an Australian native timber, with book-matched Silky Oak (Lacewood) panels in the doors. The stand is made from Australian Red Ironbark.
The finish is Scandinavian oil and wax.
The unit is approx 1.6m tall. The cabinet itself is 600mm long x 400mm high x 200mm deep.
All joints and the dados for the door panels were done using a Festool Domino.

That’s a beautiful piece, did you design it yourself? I may be using this one as inspiration for my next scotch cabinet. Very nicely done.

The final design is mine based on similar cabinets by Krenov.

So what will be better? The fact that you built it, or the fact that you will get to empty it?

Looks great. I like the wood selection.

Great choice of Aussie wood Bob. I like the idea of the mahogany, iron bark & silky oak together

The doors really make yoiur cabinet pop. That bottle looks right at home in there. Great job.

Man I have to love a shrine!
Needs fewer glasses and more bottles though. :-)
