51” tall, 21” wide and 11” deep. Made of Beetle Kill Pine. I would show the feet I made, but it’s been determined that they are ugly (although the customer said she liked them). My wife and friends didn’t. I now understand everyone’s point about the feet. So I learned something.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Looks like a darker beetle kill pine. Looks great. Nobody ever looks at your shoes, so they say.

Dave, women collect shoes, so they ALL look at the feet. Show em anyway Monte, so we know what not to do for cabinet feet. Oh..and nice job too.

If the end grain was tucked in instead of exposed, I wouldn’t even notice.

Yup, that’s what most people don’t like.

Always good to learn new things Monte. And you’re customer driven vs. spec pieces at this time? Your pattern matching is really improving.

The only time I build spec furniture is before a show. We almost have small showroom ready, but still no storage space. Everything is still by order.

nice cabinet Monte, I almost always find something I want to do different if I make more than one of anything! Like to see pictures of your showroom when finished.
