This is my first attempt, wait make that my second attempt at making a cabinet. My first cabinet was for the shop and came out pretty good. This one however came out better. It is made of knotty Hickory. My wife handpicked every piece of wood for this project. This cabinet took about 6 months to finish and get in. I can only work in the shop a couple hours a day and have several projects always going at once. The base of the cabinet is finished with 4 coats of wipe on poly, and the top and backsplash is finished with 4 coats of a heavy brush on poly. We wanted something different for the backsplash and top so we went with a wood top and a live edge for the backsplash. My wife likes the rustic look and now she has it in one bathroom. Now I have two more to make. This was a very basic build on the cabinet, nothing fancy other then the wood. I still have to put the trim on the walls and a little touch up paint to. I just wish my house was built as square as the cabinet. That would have helped a lot on the installation of it. Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.

If you would have more time, you could sell them to stores that sell rustic furniture for log homes. Beautiful work and your wife did a great job at picking the wood.

Beautiful! Love the wood, the hardware, the fixtures and your excellent workmanship!

Even the nightlight fits!

And no house is square. You ain’t alone!

Looks great! My wife wants a “rustic” kitchen table and knotty hickory is on my short list but talk of how hard it is has me spooked. How was it to work with, any lessons learned?

First, Thank You for all the great comments. Second, to knothead. I tried to sell it but my wife stopped me before I could even get the price and words out of my mouth. I heard the words I handpicked that wood over and over again for days. I never want to go through that again. Third, to monitrowen. This wood was very hard to work with. I did have lots of trouble and problems with it. I however had a lot of fun with it. Would I do it again? Yes and am looking forward to making to more almost exactly like this one. Maybe different sinks. I forgot to mention the sink was offset on purpose to give a little bit different look and not so much mainstream. Again this was the wife’s decision.

Nice job, I love the Hickory! I’ve got a few projects posted myself that are Hickory. It can be very difficult to work due to how hard it is. I bought a drum sander just for it since running it through a planer would just tear it up.

BTW, I’m curious as to why you did the Styles and Rails opposite of the traditional direction (end grain on top and bottom instead of the sides) ?
