Made this for my wife for Christmas 2012. It is made from red oak. As for the colors…I used Minwax Ebony, Driftwood stain I got from Lowe’s, Red is a dye that I bought on Ebay, and the yellow is just everyday food coloring. The food coloring worked well. My first time to stain wood actual colors. I sprayed satin lacquer. The drawer fronts were made on the table saw using a 10° tilt. You can’t really tell from the pictures but the sides are a frame and panel design. No real plans for this project. Saw a similar cabinet online and sketched out a design in CAD. The size is 34 H x 16 D x 39 W.
