A surprise birthday gift for my wife. We needed a spot to put some of our keep sakes from our wedding for some time. Unknown to her I built this and had it hanging on the wall when she got home from work on her birthday.
The plans came from Woodsmith. I used Red Oak and a Walnut spline in the door mitres but its hard to see in the picture. Its mounted to wall via a simple french cleat. The stain is “Cherry” by Varathane with a “wipe on poly” from Minwax.
