So I wanted to try a new form of construction and decided I needed a new place to put some equipment. I decide on a pretty large cabinet (doors to come soon) I’m happy with the finished product and what I learned in the process. The table-top is just finished with one coat of “boiled Linseed oil”

I like the piece , but those screw plugs got to go . They really detract from the nice lines of your cabinet . JMO : )

Very elegant. However, I agree with Dusty56 regarding the screw plugs. Nice work.

I have to partial disagree, I think I like the plugs. While getting rid of the plugs would give it nice clean lines, the plugs gives it a tough riveted look. I am not sure that is what you were going for but if you throw in some diamond plate it would look even tougher.

Great job

i agree with snow dog…in fact before I read the other comments I was gonna suggest NOT adding doors so that you have easy access to the tools that doors may hinder AND they would cover the plugs…

such is life, eh…we all have different tastes…

Kevin, Welcome to LumberJocks. Very nice piece. I like the way it went together and would have to say I like the screw plugs as well for the industrial style finish look.
Look forward to other projects.
