I made this cabinet for my girlfriend for the holidays. She loves to birdwatch, so I made something special to keep all her birdwatching stuff in one place. The carcass is pretty much standard cherry plywood construction. I put a really nice piece of curly cherry on the top though. I wanted some outdoors flavor to it, so I left the edges pretty much the way they came from the saw mill. I just took my orbital sander to them to smooth out the milling marks and prepare it for finish. The handle is a piece of lacewood that I ebonized with india ink.
