Hello fellow LJ’s today post is a repeat of a medicine cabinet I’ve posted not so long ago with some changes in panels and stain color. This one compose of Tiger Maple carcass with book match B.E. Maple panels. I would like to encourage fellow jocks to give General Finish Dye Stain a try in your future project. These dye stain really accent the woods beautiful grain flows, with one word of caution you must thin out your first coat for a nice seal coat and then apply two finish coat on top giving ample drying time between coats. Another beauty about these dye stain is the versatility of mixing together to get a match color stain or a custom look all your own. This color was a mix of espressos, med. brown and vintage cherry to match my own bathrm. vanity for it final resting place. Thanks for viewing and have a wonderful Memorial Holiday to all…Blkcherry

Great cabinet, Al, but the wood…! The combination of the tiger and the BE is terrific. The stain really makes the grain pop. Nice work, buddy.

Beautiful work. Great results with the GF Dye Stain.

PS. Congratulations on resisting the temptation of titling your project “Eye of the Tiger”—I’m not sure I could.

Stunning cabinet! Like the dye technique, makes the grains of the gorgeous woods really pop. Great design and choice of hardware as well. Great job!
