I made this ‘on the fly’ with just a general idea of what I wanted to make and a rough sketch. I really enjoyed making this. Even though the project produced more than it’s fair share of scrap wood! But I got there in the end! and really pleased how it turned out. It measures 17’‘x 12’’ x 8’’ deep and made of walnut and maple. My Incra LS positioner jig was used to make the dovetails. I finished it with tung oil and wax. Enjoy.

That is a very nice cabinet. Looks like it gave you a lot of practice with the dovetails. The LS positioner is a great fence and is worth every penny.

Very striking! Looks like it was well planned out instead of an “on the fly” design!

Looove this! You have a great eye for design. The contrasting woods is really nice…. it’s also nice to see a dark wood be the main colour for once. LOVE IT.
