Solid cherry linen cabinet I built for a friend. 54in H x 36in W x 16in deep. 3 Shelves. Door panels beveled on table saw. Molding made with router. Legs made with tablesaw for cove cuts, router and jig saw and miter saw.
Finish is semigloss polyurethane.
You have heard of measure twice and cut once? Well, I should have read plans twice and cut once. Had the case constructed when I realized I had made it 48 inches wide instead of 36. Expensive mistake. At least I didn’t make it too small!

Very nice job, yes I like the design of the legs but it was the finish that caught my eye. I know cherry can be blochy but I think this turned out beautiful.
