New Cabinet, don’t know what I will store in it maybe some odds and ends and a couple of small vases. It was a real treat working on this project, Found the Birds Eye pine at the Home Deport, Yay! I was going to do it in Cherry but this wood pretty awesome. put on a little funky Door knob. Cut every thing by Hand and only used the planer to get the thickness. the Dovetails are pretty rough but they are starting to get better. anyways I hope you like it.

something to be said for someone who cuts dovetails by hand… you are a better man than I. Nice project!

Good looking cabinet! I don’t remember ever seeing wood like that in MY neighborhood HD! Nice design….. and BTW, seems to me one of the benefits of dovetail joinery is it does NOT have to be perfect to be forever strong.

Thanks this was a fun project. and it looks really good in the house. I put some smart phone accessories in the drawer since it’s really close to recharging area, and I put in an old lantern, some candles and Matches for emergencies. I just love the wood.

How did such a great piece of wood make it up there? Locally harvested?
You certainly did it proud. I like the plug details, balance and handwork.

vipond33 – there is a local HD in Wasilla I frequent a lot because for some weird reason they seem to get that birds eye pine a lot, and not only that but Curly maple too! you just have to weed thru the wood bins and see what they have, I am hoping for some Quarter Sawn Oak! LOL>
