This is a cabinet for a customer made out of ambrosia maple. Finish is just three coats of poly.
This was a very fun project to build. Next project out of the shop, a cherry baby cradle.

Nice job and you have to like that ambrosia maple. Good luck with the cradle.

Hmmm. Have been trying to decide on what wood(s) to use when building new kitchen cabinets for my home. May have to consider using at least ambrosia maple panels….

Wow! Really nice! And I will bet that your customer will be cutting you a rather large check. I would not even want to guess what the materials cost on this project was. But I would bet that your “scraps” will turn into some really great projects too.

Looks like you did a great job. I’m a fan of ambrosia maple for accents, but not for a whole project. It’s hard to see the details of the cabinetry because of how busy the maple is.

What was the customer going to use the cabinet for? I need a couple something similar for my kitchen. One on each side of my frig. I like the design of yours.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Jef I have a really good supply for this maple, only $1.89 a board ft. They also have some great curly, or tiger maple as you can see in some of my projects. They have some of the best cherry that I have seen, red and white oak, ash, most any domestic hardwood that you would want, all at a really, really good price.
And NorthGaMan the customer is going to use this in her bedroom to put her Bath and Body Works stuff in.
She must have a lot of bath and body works stuff.
