There is nothing like saving old plans. Plans for this about half scale cabinet came from a magazine from about 1955 or thereabouts. I always liked the photo with the article & finally got around to making the cabinet. It’s all half inch pine finished with Minwax stain and shellac. Now that I have it the problem is deciding what to do with it. Probably the best bet is to try to sell it so I can buy more lumber. It was fun to make!

It’s got a great antique look to it. What stain color did you use?

That is an interesting cabinet.

Cabinet is pine & the stain color is Minwax Golden Oak. Finish is dewaxed shellac with final coat of paste wax. If there is any interest I would be glad to provide a copy of the original plans from the magazine. Thanks very much for the nice comments, they are appreciated.

Wax on shellac. That’s why I love the finish so much. I like finishing that’s appropriate to the design. Bravo.
