Well here is the finished project, I made the handles out of rebar to continue the overall look of the cabinet, I will design another cabinet like this in the future, it was a fun little build.

Interesting to mix mediums. Great idea… Not something I would do, but still like it a lot…

Ok and I do love the handles. That I might copy. So very fun.

It was a very different project for me, it’s the mixture of the cold metal and the warm wood, when it was completed I wasn’t sure, it did turn out exactly how I envisioned it. But now after having the cabinet in our living room I have grow to really like it. The handles really add I nice touch I thought. Super simple to make as long as you have a welder and a tap set.

Cool ideas in this build. May not be for everyone but very creative idea.

Very cool piece, I like it a lot, but I think I would have painted the steel black since you cleaned up your welds so nicely. I’m guessing you cleared the steel so you won’t get surface rust (of course unless you wanted to patina a little over time). Nice project.

@awsum55, Thanks, I contemplated the color or just clearing the metal for a long time, then I thought what the heck it will be easier to paint it black if I don’t like the natural steel look way easier then stripping all the black off and then just clearing it. So as far as the reveal goes I wanted it to look similar to a bead so I welded 3/4”x3/4” angle iron set back just far enough that the wood inserts would be flush. All the wood insert panels are then attached from the backside. I didn’t want any exposed fasteners including the door hinges seen on the exterior of the cabinet. It was fun and a very different build style then what my normal is.

If you wanted the steel look you could always use some oil based silver or gray color. I was going to comment about painting black but thought it would have taken away from the look you have created.

I thought black might be too much of a contrast so I figured natural was the way I was going to go. I searched the web, specifically Pinterest and found a lot of ideas, some people paint over the raw metal a rub areas off for a more weathered look. I may change the look on the next one.

Very nice! Have you been watching John Malecki’s YouTube videos?
