This is a laundry center that was recently “commissioned” by my wife. Since I put in around 150 hours on the project I suggested that $3000 would be fair compensation for building these cabinets- in order to build something else for her of course! Needless to say I never received a check and , since this is a family oriented site, I will not print her response. :)
Both the base and upper cabinets are constructed with 3/4 cherry plywood and cherry solids. The drawers were constructed from maple solids and Russian birch plywood. The base cabinet top is constructed from maple, cherry and coffee tree. The finish is my customary finish for cherry: BLO, sealed with shellac, and followed with several coats of wipe on poly. These cabinets represent a few personal “firsts”: (1) designing a project and completing the build from the design specs, (2) first use of Blum self closing slides, and (3) first set of raised panel doors.
Thanks for viewing. Amy comments or critiques are, as always, appreciated.
