This small whisky cabinet is a gift for my father inlaw, the timber is laminated Tasmanian blackwood. I was given a small pile of the Tasmanian blackwood some is laminated and some solid.
I wasn’t sure what to make with the laminated pieces because the grian runs in different directions through out the boards as I found out the hard way.
The board that this cabinet is made from was 35mm thick and about 300mm wide and 1100mm long, I decided to test my bandsaw at its full resaw capacity of 250mm in hight. The whole process went flawlessly and found that this timber smells like a wet dog while doing it.
The janka rating for this timber is 5.9 so it is a medium hardwood.
So back to the project its self, it was going to be a tool box but after all the dovetails were cut and I assembled it for the first time I stood it on its end and thought it would make a nice tool cabinet then I added a shelf and made a small draw for it and realised it was too nice looking just to be tucked away in my workshop just for me to see.
I originally started this project at the start of March and finished it towards the end of March, then I remembered my farther inlaws 65th birthday was at the end of May so I then dicided to put a piece of glass in the door.
The glass is an old piece from a job I had done a few years prior which I have also written a post about with the big double garage doors I refurbished.
The overall dimentions of the cabinet are 545mm tall 290mm wide and 240mm deep the thickness of the stock after the original board was cut is 15mm.
Thankyou for taking the time to read this I hope you enjoy this project
