The cabinet was a rush job, this particular piece was made for my ailing father in law who always wanted one to place his model cars on. He was able to see it a week before he passed. Its made of pine, stained and varnished 3 times.

It looks great. Sorry to hear about your father-in-law. It was good that he got to see it.

Alvarez, that is a beautiful piece. I am amazed at just how beautiful the finish turned out. One doesn’t often see that with pine.

I am curious about two items. I don’t see adjustable shelf pin holes in the pre-finished photos. And, I don’t see a door for entry of items. Am I missing them? I have been looking at samples for making one and like yours very much.

Thanks for posting and thanks for additional information.

Very nice! Sorry about your father in law. Exceptional finish for pine IMO.

Thank you all for the comments…
Randy, I did mill the shelf pin holes, the one picture your referring to didn’t have them drilled yet and also my Father in law wanted a cabinet with no doors, an open case if you will.
RTB, thank you my friend…..
