I just finished up this buffet cabinet for my wife. She saw a cabinet of the same style in a Pottery Barn magazine (Lorraine Buffet). I loved it as well but decided to build it and put my own twist on it. The carcass is baltic birch with hard maple edging and molding. The drawers are soft close and quartrefoil cabinet doors have magnetic catches. The top is black walnut with plenty of sapwood. Took me about a month from start to finish in my after hours from my day job.

That’s a very nice looking cabinet. The doors are really interesting.

Well done. I like the trim on the doors.

Awesome job Branigan…I love everything about it. The spacing on all the inset doors and drawers, the door faces, it’s all great!

Did you spray or brush on the paint? I am working on a similar style of buffet for my daughter and am trying to figure out the finishing. I am leaning towards spraying it – since I just picked up a new sprayer from Woodcraft and want to try it out.

I brushed the primer and sprayed the final two coats. Gives it a sense of age while still looking extremely clean.
