Here’s the finished file cabinet I mentioned in my blog. It was designed to match the computer desk (complete, but no pictures yet; it’s covered in files…) I made at Christmas, and to hold a monster printer on top. The construction is red oak, red oak vaneer ply (from LSV, the local hardwood supplier, and really crap), and walnut. The legs have the “Blacker House” design I picked up from Darryl Pearts book, and the drawer handles are similar to handles I’ve seen elsewhere. The finish is one coat of 1/3 BLO, 1/3 Varnish, 1/3 MS; then multiple coats of wiping varnish made by thinning with mineral spirits.
