My students and I recently updated the cabinets in my office. Still a little to go, but looking good.

It does look pretty good. What kind of material it that?

White oak. It has a analine dye on it.

I love using water based analine dyes.

That is a nice office. If I had office furniture like that I believe I would enjoy going to work everyday.
The carving, flutes and raised panels are nice details that enhance the project.

Thanks for sharing.

All I’ve got is a particle board desk and foamish dividers! Nice job :)

Very nice office mine is more like tomcats, OSB walls and old metal desks from an auction.

Thats a way an office should look. With hammers, drills, saws and planes on the shelves.

I just saw an article in WOOD magazine. I think it was anyway. They talked about using vinegar to darken wood. It seems if you wash steel wool in mineral spirits to get the oil out then after it dries put it into the vinegar from 1 day up to a week for darker results. I thought that was kind of cool. If your office looks that good I need to see you shop!
