Beech Cabinet

I made this cabinet in my first cabinet class at school. Door and Drawer are inset. The toe kick was supposed to incorporate the golden section and/or the Hambridge progression. I found a way to incorporate both and I think you either love it or you hate it. Everybody says it has that Arizon Indian feel to it. The top and toe kick are solid beech. The rest is veneered. As you can tell I didn’t finish the inside. The finishing touch is the Hammer and Wrench Door pulls.

Nice design. I like the toe kick, it does give it a Southwestern look. Or in your case, a Northwestern look.
And by the way, welcome to LumberJocks.

This is a very nice cabinet. What wood did you use for the inlays and how did you finish the outside of the cabinet?

Thanks for the post.
