Hi everyone, This is a liquor cabinet that my son made. He is 24 years old and is working really hard
building furniture , cabinets, built ins, so he can earn a living doing something he loves to do. The cabinet is
made of rock maple with spalted maple doors. The dovetails are hand cut. The slab table is cuban mahogany
with the corner mitered. The legs are african mahogany. There was alot of hours spent on this piece, because all the wood for this project was planed by hand. The inside of the cabinet was finished with shellac and the rest with a danish oil. He is not a member of lj’s so I hope you don’t mind me posting this. Thanks Ron

I like and don’t like how the doors are missing the middle stiles. I often make them narrower in the middle. But it still looks good.

That is some of the nicest Spalted Maple that I’ve ever seen and he made good use of it. I love how you can see the spalt in the dovetails as well : ) Is the cabinet and table meant to be together or are they two seperate projects ? What did he use for the door handles ?

Thank you everyone for the comments and feedback. I appreciate that. ....Dusty, yes the 2 peices are meant to go together. The pulls are made of ebony.
