At the request of my better half, I built this cabinet to put in the kid’s bathroom. It measures 22 1/2 inches high by 21 1/2 inches wide.
The lumber came from a walnut tree that was blown down by a hurricane several years ago. We cut some slabs on my dad’s chainsaw mill. I brought the wood home, milled it on my bandsaw and sealed it with some latex paint. After the wood dried it was in pretty rough shape. Several passes through the jointer and planer and it was good to go.
I did use walnut plywood for the back so, I can’t say I milled all of the lumber. The plywood was my dad’s and is a few decades old. You can see the difference in the patina between the fresh cut walnut and the walnut plywood. Walnut really turns orange with age.
I included a picture of the wood after it was milled.
This is not my favorite project but it is probably my cheapest.
Thanks for looking and have a great day,
