I just finished this last week. I used the notch in the front legs to hide pins that the doors swing off. To get them so close with out rubbing I cut a “V” cove so as the doors edge opens it goes in and out of the cove. So you don’t see any hinges, I thought that would be cool =)

The door and the punhed louver panels are made from 18g sheet, I welded the details to the front. I painted them blue and started adding layers of hand painted rust effects. I used walnut, cocobolo and maple for the wood.

Hey Jason
This is a cool piece wonderful design and wood. I’m not into the metal part of the project but what do I know I’m just an old guy. Well done.

This gives me flashbacks to my grandmothers veggie cabinet on the enclosed back porch. Vents on the side for ventilation and doors on the front for curious four legged types.

The leg feet are interesting. The top is awesome and the tenons coming through are a real detail to catch attention. I like hiding the hinges.

Steve.

Beautiful,I love the combination of brown & blue on just about anything but when the brown is warm wood juxtaposed with cool metalic blue I just start drooling!
Excellent work!!!
