One day I deceided to take an open wood working class at the local high school. I needed a project so I went walking through the mall and found a bar/ liqour cabinet that caught my eye. I checked the construction and it looked like the materials were low grade and it would be easy to replicate. I was astonished when I checked the price tag…$1000. So I went to their website, and started drawing. I went to class and started building. I was frustrated that this is mostly a table saw project, and the class had only one table saw. So i bought a table saw and then a biscut joiner. I finished the project at home and fell in love with working wood. Since then I have purchased at least $1000 in. tools, so I guess it would have been cheaper to just buy the cabinet. This cabinet is made of Cherry Plywood and solid cherry. I am waiting to build a wine rack in the lower left space as soon as time and money allow.
