A former student of mine contacted me about making a liquor cabinet for her and her boyfriend. She didn’t want wine racks or drawers, just shelves. This is what I came up with. It’s red oak with mahogany ply panels for the doors and book matched waterfall walnut for the top. The walnut grain continues from the bottom piece up to the top on each side and both sides have opposite angles for fins sake.
The cabinet is finished with semi gloss lacquer (always fun in the cold of the shop) and the walnut has a glossy wipe-on polyurethane finish.

Excellent design. Isn’t it weird when former students are now adults wanting liquor cabinets? My wife has been teaching for 30 years and is now teaching kids of kids that she taught.

A very nice looking liquor cabinet—I’m sure she’ll be very happy with it!

Very cool and unique design. Pretty intersting combination of woods and miter joinery.

Thank you all! It was an interesting design, but I was really excited to use the waterfall edge with this. I think the use of the different woods with the semi-gloss on the body and the glossy top helps to set up the differences in the design pieces. I’m very happy with how it came out and the way the waterfall top looks. These pictures don’t even allow you to see how cool the bookmatched pieces are!
Thanks again!

I like the design of the cabinet, but your wood choice and finish does not look very good in my opinion. Either wood and finish would have been great, just not together.

I dislike red oak as a rule, but my former student told me that she didn’t like maple and wanted oak. White oak ply was too expensive for the project, so we went with the red.

Thanks again for the comments!
