The other day a good friend stopped by and purchased Thirty-Two, a wall cabinet (see my projects). I was delighted that she did, but that meant I needed to build another cabinet to store CD”s and DVD’s. From a pile of reclaimed lumber AKA pallet boards, Thirty-Three grew – visually influenced by its predecessor’s false drawer fronts as a door. I’m always amazed at the variety of interesting woods found in pallets, er reclaimed shipping platforms and I save the best for projects, not knowing when they will come into good use. Since the boards are quite visually demanding, it made sense to keep the overall design simple with no added colors and shapes (compared to Thirty-Two).
Species: Pine, Red Oak, Cherry, several types of Maple, plus unidentified woods.
Size: 14” wide, 34” high, 8 3/4” deep.
Finish: Natural Danish Oil plus WB Polyurethane.
Inside the door, done in 1/8” thick walnut, is Thirty-Three’s numerical identity.
No sandpaper was harmed (or even used) during construction – all surfaces are scraped and filed.
It is, however, necessary to sacrifice several sets of planer and jointer knives to the wood Gods and perform a lot of flat and edge laminating.
