I call this one a “Mini Armoir”. I was looking through Cabela’s a while back & saw a cabinet that was just about the right size for what I wanted. About 44” tall. So I made my version with a pedistal base instead of wrought iron. It’s made of pine has two added shelves behind the doors & the top hinges up to reveal an (almost) secret compartment. I used porcelain knobs.

The finish is golden oak & my memory must be fading… There’s actually 2 shelves inside.

Pretty cool. I like the battens on the doors and top.
