I was re-sawing some vertical slices from a Walnut stump, and I found this book matched pair. My wife has wanted a spice cabinet, but we do not have any wall space near the stove. I did have just over 14 1/2”’s under the cabinet. The slices of wood were 15”’s. After trimming rough edges, I had 14” and added 3/8’ walnut feet. It slides in snugly. The feet let the door open without dragging on the countertop. There is about 1/4” clearance at the top. I finished it with Watco Natural Danish Oil. I was going to continue with some rattle can Poly, but I liked the look of the Watco alone when I put it in place on the counter. So did my wife and that settled that! About 14 1/2 inches tall, 5 inches deep, and 15 1/2 inches wide. Another diversion from box making. Lots of learning and design opportunities. Since I started with the door, I built the cabinet to fit the door and the space.
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
