That’s really nice. Was this your own design? I’d love to build one of these. I have just the place for it.

The design is sort of a knock-off of commercially available models. The kids saw a Steamer Bar Cabinet at Crate & Barrel that they liked, so I worked off ad photos of that and tweaked it some.
Here’s the C&B: http://www.crateandbarrel.com/steamer-bar-cabinet/s233296
There was a cheaper version available from Amazon I used for reference also.
The final styling, all the sketches and final dimensions were my own. Probably have almost as much time in playing with design tweaks as I did actual building.

“Probably have almost as much time in playing with design tweaks as I did actual building.”
I think many of us can relate to that statement. Sometimes I have to force myself to put down the pencil and just get out in the garage and start cutting the wood or I’ll never have time to build what I’ve been designing. I’m starting to play around with SketchUp and it’s easy to spend hours tweaking and looking at a plan from every angle.
Thanks for the links. I’ll check them out. My Christmas Tree is currently occupying the nook that I was thinking of placing the cabinet, so I have some time for planning on this one.
