12” deep, 30” long, 30” high. All solids except for the drawer bottom and an applied back. It was designed to fit right underneath a solid walnut countertop I made for the bathroom, and to be able to be moved elsewhere if need be. The handles are great, as the inner bar is blue glass—matching the cathedral-textured stained glass triangles in the doors, and matching the blue glass theme in our bathroom. Finish was 6 coats of waterlox, 2 coats of wax.

The purple on those storage cabinet doors is so deep you can hardly tell its colour until its opened! But you’ve got it situated in a good place in your home where there’s a lot of light, so hopefully people will be able to see that colour when they visit your home! It’s so rich, it ought to be appreciated properly!

Thanks, Marcio. I knew the glass wouldn’t be seen well unless it’s opened; and the purpleheart in the drawers and front wouldn’t be seen unless it’s opened either, but that was my intent. I didn’t want to build in a style where there are no surprises. A lot of builders go for the ‘up-front’ “wow”—where all the good wood and everything that’s impressive is apparent from the outside. Then, as you open it or use the piece of furniture, everything is just as you would expect. I enjoy making pieces that have some secrets: the splines in the doors are purpleheart; the drawer’s dovetails were handcut: 3 broad and two micro-sized, etc. it indicates that someone put thought into it instead of just ‘knocking out’ a cabinet.
