Spice cabinet I built for my Mom. Wild cherry with quilted maple drawer fronts. Tung oil finish. Two secret compartments in back accessible by removing bottom drawer to lift off back of cabinet.

Looks nice. I sure would like to see some larger photos of it though. I can barely make out the grain.

Absolutely beautiful … and really, really creative.

I’d be grateful for a couple of clearer shots, too … if you can.

Just caught pic #4, and the secret to the hidden crypt. Verrrry cool!

Well done!

A great looking case. I’ve seen one (in a magazine) that has inlays in the door. I don’t remember where, but they had a how-to-do it.

Some secret drawers just have to be a part of the case.

Yep that was it. I took a class on finishing at Steve Lattas school. A great guy. The class was taught by Jeff Jewitt.
