This is a cabinet I made for a birthday present. The doors are book-matched pieces old-growth Douglas Fir salvaged from a mine shaft in Black Hawk, Colorado. The boards had a dark gray patina and a heavily checked surface. The stripe effect was achieved by taking a light pass with the planer, leaving just enough of the dark grooves. I have to admit it was unintentional at first, but I quickly set about repeating the process. The pull is carved from a piece of walnut, and the carcass is tiger maple. It’s about 17” tall, and hangs on the wall with a French cleat. The finish is Minwax semi-gloss wipe on Poly.
I hope you guys dig it.
