Hello LJ’s and a Happy Easter to all, here is one of two commission piece for a neighborhood friend, made from 3/4 oak plywood and solid oak face framing. This is a two piece unit for ease of install, standing at a full 8’ tall. Joinery includes pocket hole and dado joints. The finish is a pickling stain and three coats of acrylic-ploy clear satin. Well not much more to say take care and thanks for viewing…BC

Nicely done Wilson. A handsome looking piece. I have to say, the pickled finish is not my cup of tea but, it’s what the customer wanted. The bare wood looks so nice. What did you do for drawer construction and drawer slides?

Hey BC,
I too prefer a more natural finish, but hey, you did a really good job.
That is a very tall cabinet.

Hey Lenny, the drawer were assembled with the Kregs pocket hole system. This was due to budget restraints, using baltic 1/2” plywood. I find it hard not to get tear out on using dovetail or box joints with this type of ply, even with using both a sacrificial face piece and backer board. The drawer glide by Blum , the bottom Euro style white Epox finish 18” in length. The finish had to complement exciting finishes in this master closet remodel.

Hey Steve, by clients need more storage space in this very limited area. I had to knock down wall and reconfigure the entire area to fit there needs. It was quit a ordeal moving light fixtures , walls , outlets, installing new doors and one being a pocket door. This is just one of two cabinet that I will be building for this customer.
