This is a pair of custom cabinets that I built for a customer. Not really sure what you’d call this style It almost has an eastern feel to it but a the same time a little contemporary. Doesn’t help that I put mission hardware on it.

The customer was real specific on certain design aspects, including hole placement in the back.

The top is a torsion style top to match the thickness of the post.

Wood Type: Maple, Poplar, and MDF

Finish: Pigmented lacquer

Hardware: Mission from

Date Completed: March 2013

I looked at your web page, you do nice work. But I really want to point out to everyone that the finish is PIGMENTED LACQUER, not latex paint. This is the correct way to “paint” your cabinet and furniture projects. Well done.

You are right Sam. Best for both me and the customer. It drys fast and clean, and the customer gets a smooth hard finish that doesn’t chalk up.
