I built this cabinet as a wedding gift for some good friends of mine. It measures 36” wide x 48” tall and is 16” deep. I made raised panels sides and a combination of raised panel and tin panels in the doors. I stained it with red mahogany

Wow very impressive. Did you work on the tin yourself? If you did what is the best way to create the design on the tin?

Thank you for the welcome and the compliments. jrhovde, I did not make the punched tin panels. Those I purchased from an online distributor.

Really fine piece of work. I’ve made a few cabinets with pierced tin panels and had one in which the panel got dented during early use. Now I back the tin panel insert with one quarter inch oak plywood to make it more dent resistant.

When using these stock tin panels you often find that the range of sizes is limited. So I acquire the panels and then build outwards from the panel size as I construct the cabinet. Of course if you pierce the tin yourself you’re did not restricted by this size limitation. But that’s way more work than I am up for.
