I apologize for not keeping up more with my posts… I will try to do better on that, I have completed many other projects and many other upgrades to the shop that I need to post and share with you all!
This is a solid padauk curio cabinet I made for my mother for x-mas. It was a real pain working with the padauk because of its dye like sawdust that likes to stain everything. Mostly shirts. :-(. But it’s well work the reward, the wood is absolutely outstanding. A rich reddish orange that looks like its on fire when the sun hits it. :-) two LED lights light the inside very well and shut off automatically after 30 mins. My mother plans on putting all of her crystal collection inside. The prisms from the different cuts of crystal are incredible shinning inside the cabinet, which is just what I was looking for. I know pictures never do justice. The cabinet was sprayed with a clear lacquer. Four tempered glass shelves with a beveled edge. My mother cried in my arms with happy tears in pier shock in what her son built for her. Made me feel like a million bucks! I truly have a passion for wood working and my soul expresses it.
Just wanted to share with you all. I also need to work on posting these pictures better. Lol
