Pictured: After extensive search I think I can safely say that this is once again a one of a kind in the Tea, Sugar and Spice kitchen cabinet category for bandsaw box building, Here I created a Tea, Sugar’n Spice cabinet (bandsaw box / cabinet), I used Alder for the core and also for the cutting board style back then wrapped it with Red Oak to hide the exposed edges where the alder had to be laminated together.
Build: The core is a make up of two sets of four – 4 1/4” wide x 13 1/4” long cut alder then edge glued together, wrapped in red oak cut to length to also create an extra storage area on top a tray area for more extra storage such as bottled spices that aren’t in the raw form with a 1” x 8 1/2” cut piece of red oak to create the center wall on top thus creating the tray, I optioned finger pulls instead of knobs. I really enjoyed building this project had great fun. Measurements are 19” High x 11” Wide x 4 1/2” Deep, top tray area is 1” x 8 1/2” x 3 1/2” top two drawers are 3” x 3” square x 2” deep 4 middle drawers are 3” x 3” square x 2 3/4” Deep and the bottom drawer is 7 1/2” Long x 3” Wide x 2 3/4” Deep finished with one coat of tung oil, two coats of wipe on poly and a final wipe down with paste wax.
Scope: I optioned for this style of cabinet opposed to a box as I wanted to create an elegant contemporary or Traditional appeal depending on how you look at it kitchen storage for Tea, spices and sugar with massive storage more then what a box could offer with out taking up much real estate on the counter top that a box would, also with the correct height to fit under the upper cabinets and also with the option to hang on the wall.
thanks for looking and comments are always enjoyed.
