It’s too bad the room was to small to fit the whole thing in one pic.

Cabinet was solid poplar, 8’ high x 8’ wide.

My wife would kill for a butler’s pantry (therefor she won’t see this project) ;)
Storage is kind of like tools and clamps…

I really like the hardware, fit’s the design very nicely.

Beautiful! Is it used for clothing? Mary’s been buggin me to build an Amoire(sp?) to increase our clothing storage. Could you post a photo of the interior? I’m interested to see what you did inside…

Nice cabinetry work. The finish looks sprayed on, is it?

This is a very nice design. How about some pictures with it opened?

This cabinet stores everything from pots & pans to scarves & mitts. Each of the drawers has 150 lb. capacity Euro-tracks, so I guess that theoretically it could sleep 6…

The finish was initially sprayed- 3 coats.

After installation the client’s wife wanted it glossier. Then, just a bit glossier than that. So the last 2 coats were brushed.

I have pic’s of the inside somewhere, I’ll post them as soon as I track them down. Either that, or I’ll post the design.
