Another project out of necessity. I had a computer hutch sitting in this corner and it looked pretty cheesy! I really enjoyed how this project turned out. It was the first time I used Google Sketch-up to design the project and it really helped me determine the right size and layout of the cabinet. The top, sides, and bottom are curved. The frame is held together using pocket screws (really tight joints). Finished with Danish Oil, then clear shellac.

Lesson learned from this project? Sapwood is great to include in your design. I had just enough walnut for this project, so I needed every bit I had – which included the sapwood. I tried to incorporate the sapwood on the edge of the top and the bottom rail so that it offsets each other. It turned out making the piece look so much cooler just by taking a little time to balance everything out.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice indeed. Showed the pictures to my wife, and now she wants me to build one too. I just recently bought the Kreg jig kit and have really enjoyed getting to use pocket screws. Makes for some really solid joints. Love the combo of the heart wood and sap wood, the contrast is always nice.
