Here is a little cabinet I made to hold our coffee K-cups instead of the cardboard box they come in. It is made from some oak scraps that match our kitchen cupboards and I tried to book match the drawer fronts as best as I could. The knobs are turned by me as well. It has a ceramic tile paneled top so it could double as a place to set a hot pot or dish. The drawers are simple pieces of multi ply with 1 3/4” holes drilled every 2 1/4” and slide in dadoes. Finish is my favorite go-to tung oil.

Thanks for looking and comments and critiques are welcomed

That is an eye-popping kind of work!

Very cool and functional. I like the tile inlay, breaks things up a little.

Good idea on the top. Might be able to combine with some other kitchen functionality in the area base on need.

I’m a purist so could size it to sit/mount my grinder on top, an accessories draw (filters, loose leaf tea, mixing spoons), and K-cup drawers for her.

Very nice. I have been trying to find an idea for our office. That looks very rich.
