All looks very nicely done.
Hate to sound picky, we like to hear wood type & dimensions. Any special construction techniques?

Hey Venus, Love the intricate details of that cabinet. I personally would have showcased each piece separately, giving each piece all 6 pictures to tell your story of the build. Like monty said, “we like to hear wood type & dimensions”, your projects clearly belong in this group of “Wood-a-holics”. We look forward to seeing what you’ll build next.

I believe cumaro is another name for teak. Very hard wood.

Any tips for an inlay virgin?
#8 posted 09-06-2012 08:13 PM
sure Kvont,,, ill try to spew some tips for you,, 1,, dont over glue,,when you clamp the inlay in if you used too much glue it will actually blow out the wood to escape,,,2.i suggest mlcs inlay kit,, 30-40$,,3. wait bout 24 hours before you plane or sand your inlay,,, as the glue drying it will pull the inlay in(just a tiny bit) 4,, use sharp chisels,, razor blades ect,, if you have any questions ill try to answer best i can to help!

This looks great!
I’m curious why you chose to do your dovetails with the tails on the front piece. It seems that defeats the purpose of the joint resisting the pulling on the front.
Was that just an aesthetic design choice, or is there something else to it?
I’d also be interested in seeing your drawer runner setup, if you could post another picture or two.

ya,, just for looks,,@ rlindberry ,,they wont come apart,,that and no one else does em that way,, i dont have that piece anymore,, but ill take pics of the runners on the box i kept for myself soon for ya.. i just route a slot in the sides of the drawer 3/8 by 3/8 (plunge route) stopping before the front,, then i mount 5/16×5/16 runners on the carcass. getting the drawers to line up is a bit time consuming,,
