The material used for the cabinet is Red Oak with a white wash finish and 3 coats of polyurethane. all the joints are mortise & tenant, door is 3/16 tempered glass and the shelves are 3/16 glass with polished edges, mirrors 3/16 float glass and the cabinet has lighting located on the top inside panel..

This cabinet was one of my first major woodworking projects and has survived two major moves one from our home in California to storage and from storage to our new home in Idaho. Since we got new furiture my wife has ben ever-so-jentley trying to get me to refinish it to match your new furniture, a Black antique finish.

Well I know how wives are – so my advice would be to get the new finish project over with now, since you know that you will have to do it eventually. Great looking cabinet.

Very nice. Shows a job well done after the moves and it sounds like it will also get a second life if the wife has her way. Nice work.

Looks great! I agree with Bill (cajunpen) that you better re-finish it and get it over with.

Nice job! I’ve always been scared to death about making the leaning cabinet of curio. You did a nice job!
