This is a project I have been wanting to build for a while and finally got around to it.
The cabinet is 24w x 12d x 13h. The cabinet is made with a type of cherry (I was told it was brazilian cherry but it’s not. It was a good deal and looked nice so I bought it anyway.). The drawer fronts are curly maple and the knobs are jatoba (real brazilian cherry). The drawers are baltic birch ply and luan bottoms (I had some lying around.)
The finish is 3 coats BLO/MS/Gloss Poly followed by 3 coats MS/Gloss Poly. After it cures for a couple weeks I’ll rub it out a bit.
I haven’t decided what to do inside the drawers and top compartment yet. Possibly some dividers or at the least I’ll line them somehow.
The only problem I had was the wood didn’t finish consistantly. Different pieces took on different colors even though it was basically a clear coat.
Now to fill it!
