Here is the latest to my collection of projects.
The cabinet measures 1225mm (48”) wide, 1016mm (40”) high and 420mm (16 ½”) deep. The primary wood is Black Cherry, secondary wood is Silver Birch, the flat panels are Finnish birch plywood with cherry veneer. The knobs are walnut. The doors and drawer fronts are solid cherry
The veneering of the plywood was undertaken in the shop, and the knobs are hand turned (getting 9 knobs exactly the same is not that easy as a part time turner)
The drawers have a solid cherry front, whilst the sides and back are made from Silver Birch and the base is Finnish birch plywood.
The project time was about 150 hours from concept, through design, build and finishing.
The cabinet sanded to P400, 2 coats of hard wax oil applied, and left for a week to fully cure, then lightly dry sanded to P1000, the cabinet is then finished with 2 coats of Fiddes Cherry supreme wax. 1 more coat application of wax is to be applied next week, then its ready for delivery to the customer.
