I recently finished this CD cabinet. I started it over two years ago, closer to three actually, when I built the case out of cabinet grade Maple plywood. It sat in a corner of my shop until my wife asked if I was ever going to do anything with it. Little by little I chipped away at it and intended to blog my progress on “Lumberjocks”. Well, the blog never happened but here is the finished cabinet.
I love using contrasting woods like Cherry and Maple and book-matching interesting wood grains. I find both give me a relaxed and comforting feeling, especially when that first deep soak of tung oil mix hits the wood.
This cabinet stands 73 inches tall, 9 inches deep and 18 inches wide. It is constructed with heart and sap wood Cherry. The panels are book-matched spalted Maple and it is finished with 6 coats of a tung oil blend with 2000 grit wet sanding between coats.
It holds 275 CD cases.
