The project was taken from a Woodsmith magazine. Cabinet was originally a wine cabinet and I made it into a Micro-wave stand. Unit is solid Cherry with Oak Framing around doors. Hardware is excellent and from Antique House of Hardware. Project plans were excellent and it was a real learning experience. especially the joinery aspects.
