This is a cherry wet bar that I just completed for a happy customer..

I opened up the wall, removed the old cabinets that was there.. re-drywalled and taped and textured and painted the new opening and built the was a fun job..

The cabinet is Cherry, stained with minwax (Red Mahogany) then because cherry is notorious for splotching..I glazed the cabinets by adding a little of the stain to my sealer when I really worked great..

The doors are raised panels and the drawer faces are 5 piece..

I used a conversion varnish for the final finish in semi-gloss..

I made this cabinet a little different for I installed a downlight in the top lid, but the way I made this, there are 4 hidden screws that once removed, the top lid slides down and out allowing access to the light and electrical components, thus eliminating having to remove the whole cabinets and moldings if the light fixture ever goes out..

oh..and the missing being made now to be added later..LOL

Looks great, although I don’t think you can call it a wet bar without a sink. ;)

Seriously though, you did a good job.
