Well Ol’ Norm didn’t tell me, while he was building this cabinet out of pine on TV-that if I chose to build it out of White Oak instead-that I would also have to build a base to sit it on! Oh well such are the surprises that one encounters while following some one elses plans. Nothing in real project is as white or yellow as it is in these photos. Photographer shot under atrocious lighting conditions and was constrained due to location to correct the problem. Finish is Minwax Golden Yellow Oak stain and Polyurethane semi-gloss varnish. Accent squares in base are Jatoba that were formed with little pointed four side faces using the Worksharp-that thing sharpens eveything!

This cd case and stand are beautiful. You did a good job on the construction and the finish. The brazillian cherry accents add a nice detail to the stand.

You made good use of your WorkSharp as well.

Thanks for the post.

Great job on this cabinet. I think the base gives it a more meaningful look. The finish looks quite nice as well.

A nice looking cabinet. Where did you get the hardware? I really like it. It adds a nice touch.

Beautiful cabinet. Reminds me of one of those old fashioned card catalogs at the library.

That is really nice. Good job with the base. I like the accents and the uplift on the aprons. Sometimes the little things really add to it.

Beautiful job Butcher, that will last several lifetimes. I hope you have someone to pass it on to. That is one really neat project. Even Norm would be proud. mike
