I made this Cherry four drawer filing cabinet to replace the crappy metal one that I am happily throwing out.
This cabinet is solid Cherry, with Maple drawers and Mahogany drawer fronts.
The case and drawers are all dovetailed, and the drawer bottoms and cabinet back are all tongue & groove Oak.
I was fortunate enough to get one large Mahogany board big enough to use for all the drawer fronts. I love the way the grain runs throughout each.
I added a little sass by using a Steam Punk theme design for the drawer pulls, and then painted them jet black with brass screws.
The drawer guides are smooth operating Kosta Novas.
I finished the cabinet in Boiled Linseed Oil with one coat of Polyurethane.
It measures about 42” high x 18” wide x 22” deep.
And it weighs a ton.
It was a fun but challenging project and I hope this cabinet outlasts me.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
