This is a display cabinet to house a shot glass collection. I started a blog during construction—mainly for the customer to follow along as I made progress. I hand cut through dovetails for the main carcass (hidden under the moldings). Made from red oak per the customer’s request. I am still waiting for the LED lighting system to arrive before I deliver and install it. She wants it wall mounted, so there is a french cleat built into the back.
Finish is multiple coats of oil/poly blend, then buffed out with 0000 steel wool/wax to a smooth sheen. Silky smooth, except for the pores which I did not fill.
