I’ve have been doing a blog on this and have received some great feedback and suggestions. Thx everyone, I loved all the comments and support. Blog
Well I finally get to check this off my list as I finally finished Blondie’s Cabinet on Tuesday. She has now finished unpacking and setting up her collection of Martini glasses. Wow we have alot, ugh.
Big Thx to my Dad who helped design and work on this for the first cpl weeks with me. I had a great time during his visit from Michigan and spending all that time in the shop together was priceless. It was a comical series at times with us telling one another how things should be done. Lol. For example, how big it should be. Good times….
This project took 2 month’s after workdays and on weekends. It was made from scratch with no plans other than on a napkin. ( Well scratch pad, napkin sounded better.)
Its solid Maple with soft close doors through out & 3 levels of LED lighting with a dimmer. Stainless steel backsplash for the lower bar serving area. Top is 2 inches thick, stained with trans tint dyes I came up with.
Retractable powerstrip with 3 outlets that hides away if not needed. ( thought this was cool ) I finished the cabinet it with shellac with a few drops of amber dye first. I then made my stain color with 2 parts pickerd oak and 1 part cherry. I Sprayed 12 coats of General Finishes Satin Lacquer and rubber out. My Earlex 5500 got a workout.
She is big and heavy, 5 feet long, 7 feet tall and 2 1/2 feet deep.
Door handles are martini glasses on top and shakers on bottom found on Ebay.
Blondie is happy which is a good thing. Lol
Thx again pops.
Thx for looking and all comments are appreciated.
