Well, its been a few years since my last post, but only because of time not lack of interest. I think about the fellow jocks nearly every day. As part of my admiration for the work I see, i made this custom cabinet out of fine cherry and waterfall burbinga. The cabinet is a copy of one that I saw here by Jeff F. ....”:http://lumberjocks.com/projects/22261.
Thanks Jeff. He was very helpful as are many of you.
Anyway, The cabinet is six drawers with cedar drawer bottoms. I used a pinned rabbit drawer technique as seen in Fine Wood Working.
The case is dovetailed, the then face framed.
It has cherry bun feet, and a waterfall burbinga floating top. Wow the burbinga was expensive (5 feet x 30 inches for $1550 at west penn hardwoods).
The wood was also crazy hard and caused blade deflection even in my worm drive skill saw. It was a scary cut as one mess up would be very expensive. I cut out the top from the live edge slab then made a mirror with lights to highlight the slab the below. Poly finish.The Sink is hammered copper, and I went with the waterfall faucet to complete the theme.
Fun Project, with high quality materials. I did not get to keep it as it was a paid commission. Maybe next time.
Took about 80-100 hours.
