This is a corner cabinet that Lonnie Bird had in a 1998 wood magazine that I retained until I had the time to build it. I still have to build the 15 light upper door and the double raised panel tombstone door for the bottom. The only deviation from the plans was a little modernization (per the request of the loml) by adding some LED lighting. The build was a challenge for me and streached some of my skill set, but I feel I will now be able to streach my skills more in future efforts.
It is solid walnut throughout that I purchased from a mill in North Carolina a few years back…didn’t want steamed walnut, which is all I could get in San Antonio at the time. For the finish, the first coat is Seal-a-Cell, with 3 coats of ProFin from Daley’s.
