A while ago a friend of mine sent me a text that said “Can you make me a cabinet like this?” I said sure and then moved on to finishing some other stuff. I finally got around to doing it. This is the result. The top and drawers are made from salvaged fir from old logging booms and have some shipworm clam damage that I think is kind of neat. The rest is almost all cedar. He liked the look of cuts taken from near the heartwood for the splashes of deeper red.
Of note, the light in the drawer side comes on when you open the door, which is fun. This is also my first time putting together a sliding, pocketed tambour style door. I suggest using something a bit harder than cedar.
The final picture is the one that came with the text. That’s about all the guidance I had to work with.
