These are two lowered base cabinets that the customer wanted to use to delineate the space between their living and dining areas. They are VG Fir finished with conversion lacquer. The doors and finished “end-panels” were routed to accept the seeded glass or the solid VG Fir 1/4 in paneling. Here is a picture of me cutting the filler panels.

The “box” has a 3/4” fir ply base and biscuited and glued side panels that I hand planed.

The middle stripe in the top and the pyramid block pegs are Padouk (see clamp monster in above photos). I used blum slow close hinges and am leaving the 4” base for the customer to decided what his base trim profile will be.

Thanks for looking.

Many people, myself included, associate fir with framing lumber. I am always surprised how beautiful fir actually is.

You did a great job on these cabinets.

Nicely done, and the fir is attractive.
