This is a cabinet that I cannot take full credit for. The project was built between myself and another woodworking friend of mine. The cabinet was originally going to be built by my friend for his son, but for various reasons he got me to help out. The cabinet was designed mostly by him, the actually construction of the project by me and the finishing was done by him.
The cabinet is built from white ash and baltic birch plywood, except the bottom of the drawer which is oak plywood. The panels on the side gables are book matched and the two front door panels are book matched as well. I made sure the rails on the two front doors were from two boards instead of four so that the grain pattern flows across both doors. The majority of the parts are 7/8” thick with the top being about 1”. The drawer is guided by wooden strips under the drawer bottom. The drawer is built with machine cut dovetails (my friends decision, not mine) but I have to say they weren’t all that bad to make. All the hardware was purchased from Lee Valley.
