I got the plans for this project off of finewoodworking.com and I believe this projects has free plans and a video workshop series with Garrett Hack. This is Garrett Hack’s design. I built this for my wife in the Spring of 2013. This project is made of mahogany and maple/birds eye (panel). The knob is made out of ebony and the banding is made out of ebony and holly. This is the first time I made my own molding and banding. If you have never done this I would highly recommend it. This is a great project to expand your skills and gives you the insight to how one of the best out there thinks/designs/creates.

That is a spectacular piece. Workmanship, wood choice, it’s all there.

That’s a really nice cabinet. The wood choices really work well together, the grains are incredible.

That’s quite nice. I’ve never done banding, but was quite inspired after watching one of those YouTube videos featuring a Japanese master woodworker do it all with hand tools (and use twine to clamp it together).

I’ll have to show this design to my wife and see what she thinks. We’ve been looking for something to do with a bunch of book matched pecan I purchased about 17 months ago.

Simply gorgeous. I recently bought the DVD. I want to make some moulding planes before I even start this project, otherwise I will only have a box. What type of finish did you use?
