Beer for My Horses

I made this cabinet for a mini beverage refrigerator. The refrigerator will sit on top of the cabinet. The extra beverages will fit down below (hidden behind the cabinet door, as requested by my wife). I am looking forward to getting this finished and placed in my house. My beverage of choice is Miller Genuine Draft and Pepsi One—I have to watch my girlish figure.

The cabinet is made of hard maple. I used euro-style hinges. The size is 25 inches tall by 24 inches wide by 21 inches deep. The cabinet door is stile and rail construction. I used pocket hole joinery for securing the top. Tim

Great job!

I wish I didn’t have the feeling that people like you “bang out” something like this in … oh …. about 45 minutes.

I can’t help that feeling, though ;-)

That first frosty MGD is gonna’ taste mighty good!

Nice job. I’d have to keep the whole set-up in the shop. Would you mind reposting this project again when it is finished and has the refrigerator on top?

Nice work, I like the set back on the legs for the side! Interesting concept and look! Also the face frame set back also gives it character. Will be interesting to see it when its finished. How do you like your Rigid Osc. Sander? thinking of getting one been looking at the grizzly as well.

Ken – I use the Rigid Osc. Sander all the time. I like it as it serves several purposes. You can use is as a belt sander for small edging and the like, and you can use either end for rounded edges. The ends are different sizes which is nice. The oscillation works well. It has decent dust collection. I have it hooked up to a shop vac. I’d highly recommend it.

Kristoffer—I’ll see what I can do about posting additional pics after it is finished.

Neil—I wish it were that easy. It takes me awhile, especially with two young daughters in the house keeping me busy. I try to be efficient with my time, but that doesn’t always work out. In all honesty, I know what works well for me and my tools. I try to stay away from things that don’t work well. :)

Nice choice in beer. Oh yeah, and the cabinet looks great too!

-- Mistake? No, that's just an unexpected design opportunity....
