This is a liquor cabinet I just finished. It is for a friends new gallery she will be opening. The majority of the project is veneered. Beeswing cherry with a curly maple door. The center medalion was turned on a lathe and veneered with burled walnut.

Nice looking cabinet.

Is the inside just shelves?

Why Rhett, you say that’s veneered, hey, you could probably get that at Pottery Barn, couldn’t you?
No, I guess you couldn’t, just something that may look similar and last as long as the liquor you would put inside. Have a hechuva life, M&T, cuz I have a feeling we won’t be hearing from you again.

I’m sorry, Rhett, I lost my temper again. That was in no way intended at you. That is a fine work of functional art, and will make a statement wherever it will find a home, for a long, long time.

Very nice project. I would love to have something like that in my home. Too bad the liquor stays out in the shop though. Don’t worry its for after work.

To get the best sheen, you need to polish while they are still warm.
