Well this was my spring project, took longer than expected. But when I only get a few hours in the shop a week I guess it didn’t take that long. I got married earlier this year and we decided to redecorate the bedroom.
This is the first piece in the set I designed. The second is in the shop and about half way complete. This piece was made with Curly Maple as the lighter color wood and Cherry as the panels. I used a Minwax Cherry stain to the complete cabinet, with a lacquer spray finish. All the Cherry Panels are double raised panels. Stickley style three point wood drawer glides. Dove tail drawers with the bottom drawer of the three drawer section with cedar bottom. Cabinet was made in two sections than jointed together. As all solid wood projects this one took three men a a boy to move, me being the boy and holding the doors. the other peices to this set will include two night stands, a five drawer tall dresser, and the piece I’m working on a King size Sled Bed. forget to mount the clothes rod that is made of Curly Maple. it still sits on the table in the shop finished but un-installed.
