I built this cabinet for our local Credit Union to be used as a station for their Coffee maker for their customers. The cabinet is solid Cherry 37 X 22 X 30 ’ high. Behind the flush mount doors is a drawer sized to accommodate the additives such as cream, sugar and Coffee as well as the water picture. underneath the drawer is storage for the disposable Coffee cups. The top will be fitted with a 1/4 ” glass top to protect against spills Etc. (Glass Top on order)
The finish is English Walnut with a Clear Satin Lacquer top coat.
This unit matches the other furniture in the office Very Closely (They were very happy with the design and the Almost exact match)

Nice work, I hope that have a fancy coffee maker worthy of such a nice piece!

Very nice work, well designed for the intended use, excellent build. Cherry is fantastic wood to work with, works easily and the color and figure are always beautiful.
Did you use some sort of pre-conditioner to avoid blotching with the English Walnut?, or were you lucky in that the grain was in your favor?
I assume you used drawer slides, were they easy to get positioned correctly?
Very nice, thanks for showing.

Thanks for all your gracious comments. Answer to Oldtool, yes I uses a conditioner, you are so right Cherry is a wonderful wood to work with but it is sometimes bad to blotch (I used Min wax conditioner) The slides i used were a full extension ball bearing slide, very smooth with full access. Thanks have a Blessed day.

This is a beautiful looking piece.

The Cherry is very nice… great job matching grain on the glued up panels.
