This was made with pine pallet wood from work. Hand cut dovetail base, I laminated the top,sides,shelves,
and panels. I made simple cove moulding for under the top and base. the finish is red oak stain and 3 coats
of poly. Now I won’t have to dust off CD’s and DVD’s anymore, Gary

Nice cabinet, I like the proportion. And the fact that you re-used wood is awesome. Good work.

I love it when folks can take scrap and make something as handsome as your cabinet. Looks like good craftsmanship and a really nice design.
