Well it has been a while since I have talked to ya’ll.

Here is another CarveWright Project …................

SO, I figured I better go big or stay home. Here is the project that I have been working on as a Valentine’s gift to the LOML. The base of the cabinet is a Valentines gift that I gave to her about 11 years ago, it just didn’t fit our decor anymore. The door panels are New Maple glue-ups that are stained with MinWax tintable stains. As a firm believer in R-Cubed (recycle, reuse and rebuilt) I had to reinvent it….. here you go.

The panel on the left was a Study…. that will be added to a future project.

We were honored by Minwax as the November 2012 ‘Fan of the Month’ ...

Beautiful! I thought for sure that was stained glass when I first looked at it.

UPDATE: I sent an email to Minwax about this project …. this is their response.

Dear Jason,

Thank you for contacting Minwax. We appreciate your inquiry.

All I can say is wow! That cabinet is gorgeous! How long did it take you to stain all the different areas? I can only imagine the amount of time it took you to do that. I forwarded your project to the rest of my team. They are all just as amazed at how many different colors you used and how vibrant the colors are. If my projects ended up looking half as good as yours did I would be happy. If you ever want to share projects in the future, you can do so by emailing pictures to askminwax@sherwin.com.

Thank you sharing your project and for choosing Minwax!

Sincerely,
Feraas
Minwax Product Support
