I got a nice bookmatched set of Figured Maple and started to work on a design for a jewelry cabinet. Between chip out on the router and other issues, I put it aside as an unfinished project. My wife discovered my Penn State catalog and the projects kits. I agreed to turn some seam ripper kits for her. Suddenly I had a bunch of little odds and ends for pen making. I needed a new storage cabinet. I got the unfinished cabinet out and decided I could live with the issues. Some vigorous use of sand paper and dim light make it look good. I really like the little faces on the front. Watco Danish Oil for the finish. 23.5” x 17”x 5”. The sides are some swirly figured Maple. The doors are Quilted Maple with Maple Burl frames. I turned the knobs big to be easy to grab. Super Magnets as a catch. The sand paper cubbies next to it are made of Spalted Maple with a
Redwood cabinet. I was tired of searching through stacks of small, folded sandpaper for the right grit.
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
