I finally got tired of having bits and pieces of photo gear laying around so I made some time to build a storage cabinet for myself.

Curly western maple veneered panels, cherry veneered top and bottom, “pitchy” cherry solid frames and mouldings and hand turned ebony handles.

About 11 1/4” d x 26” w x 34” h, oil and lacquer finish.

Cheers, Don

very very nice. I love figured maple. How did you join the base to the side panels?

Case assembly

Very nice, Don.
I too am finding that when practical, finishing before assembly is easier.

Don, I always just love your work. This is marvelous. I just want to touch it.

Do I detect a very small bevel on the frame joints? It just might be my view point. Looks nice. I want to come study with you.

How do you get the edge banding to come out so flush with the veneer? I guess you just do it carefully, or do you flush cut once it is applied?

I did not know you could lacquer over oil. The end result is very nice.

I like the 35mm hinges. Good job,

Hey Don…very nice. Can you tell me about how you sealed the maple and how you gave your finish that colour. Again…I really like how you handled the finish.

Great piece.
