This is one of my Projects i made last year. It will be a vanity for our Bathroom with a chinese bowl at the top. Its made of 5 different wood species . Took some time because there are always Customers that cant wait.
The bodyframe of the Cabinet is made of imported European Beech. and the Sides, top and bottom are made of OMD Board-( Who says that its only for construction) a few passes through my homemade drum sander and they were smoth. for the legs i got the inspiration from the Gadget-station from the Woodwhisperer- Thanks for the video – they are very helpful.
The knifehinges were not available again on my island so i had to make them out of brass on my own.
The Finish is 3 coats of Sparvarnish.

Wow. You did a great job on the inlays. The frame design of the frame was a good choice for that project. Good job.

-- Have a great day.

Love the furniture. Great work.

I know just where Cebu is. My dad was flying a Nightfighter F6F Hellcat when he shot down the first Jap over Cebu in the Philippines there on Dec 4, 1944.

Beautiful, love the flowers on the front.
Simple yet elegant, to match the cabinet.
