After seeing the video on how to make this cabinet I immediately found a use for one.
Once I got started, it only made sense to make two. It gave me the perfect opportunity to put some miles on my under-utilized vacuum press and FMT.
They are made from Butternut and the door panels are Sapele veneer.
Finish is tung oil and several coats of wipe-on satin poly.
I think it will turn to the perfect color once i cover the panels and give it a week or so in the July sun.
I had forgotten how WW friendly butternut is. It really gave me a boost of confidence when my block plane just glided along like it had found a new best friend. I’ll be using more of this in the future.
Here is a link to the video. Mario Rodriguez makes it look easy and walks you through all the steps.
It’s a really easy cabinet to build and I highly recommend it. The french cleat makes hanging a snap.
Thanks for looking,
