This is a project built for one of my favorite clients. Woods are walnut, cherry, and birdseye maple. Frame and panel construction for sides and back and top is veneered cherry ply with a walnut mitered frame. The piece will feature two knobs as soon as they come in from the hardware dealer.
Finish is nuttin’ but oil! Tung oil to be exact. The client prefers oil-only finishes.
Interesting details to note:
The door panels. I covered the construction of these panels in this video: http://thewoodwhisperer.com/a-fancy-raised-panel/
The adjustable shelf. I decided to install the adjustable shelf pins into the legs, as opposed to the sides. The side panels are solid wood and will move over time, so I didn’t think this was a good place for shelf pins. The pins in the front and back are pretty low key and it works rather well. For shelf pins, I used 1/4” walnut dowels.
That’s it. I hope you like it.
