I built this for my daughter’s 25th Birthday. The outside is from Cherry and the inside from Hard Maple.
The plans called for Soft Maple but I have quite a bit of Hard Maple left over from some other projects
so I used that.
The plans were excellent and even had a little treasure hunt to them. Instead of calling out all dimensions for easy reference the author made the reader search a little. Between the drawings and instructions all the information is there.
Etching the tulips on the glass side doors was pretty easy. I had never etched glass before but they came out great the first time. I pulled an image off the internet and wrapped the glass with shelf liner. Here is a Youtube link for etching glass. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSB47f6wYRg
The finish is 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal Semi Gloss.
