I’m cheating here because I didn’t really do the woodworking on this. I bought the old cabinet at a junk store, took out the wooden panels in the front of the doors, and made stained glass panels to go inside.

That is a very nice job Backyarder1. The stained glass really added a lot of detail and interest to the piece. I would not even attempt something like this, since I am “artistically challenged” to put it diplomatically. I admire the skills and abilities of anyone who can produce something like this.

Thanks for the post.

I’ve always wanted to do that, but am always afraid one of the kids would slam one of the doors and all that work would be gone. Very Nice. I like It!!

It’s called….I forget what it’s called. But it’s nice! Did you buy the stained glass panels pre-made or did you build them yourself?

Thanks for all the nice comments. I designed and made the glass myself. It’s really very simple.
