I got into woodworking while stationed in Honduras. The base had a nice moral program including a woodshop, hammock making, and wicker furniture. It provided $300 worth of materiel for whichever one you choose to do. I always wanted to try woodworking, but never could afford to buy any of the machines to really get into it. This was my opportunity to try and see what I could do.
One of my first big projects I took on was this china cabinet. After researching in numerous woodworking books on design and construction techniques, this is what I was able to create. My basic design came from a picture I found online with some overall dimensions. The first two pictures are from when I was still in Honduras. I waited until I returned to the U.S. before doing the finishing just in case of damage in shipping. If you look closely at the bottom, I did end up changing the base. Those little legs didn’t do well in shipping, so I went with a more solid base. The finish is just clear gloss poly.
