I made this as a gift for my niece and her fiance as a wedding gift. I got the basic idea from another project on the forum. It is made from cherry and walnut accent. It is finished with four coats of hand rubbed danish oil and two coats of paste wax.

Very nice!

I’ll take that Lynmar off your hands if you are needing to get rid of it.

Thanks for the comments.

As for the Lynmar, you can have the cork to sniff if you like :-)

Cool design and execution. Are the walnut strips inlaid or laminated together with the cherry?

The walnut is an inlay, 1/8” wide by about 1/8” deep.

I have an all carbide 1/8” router bit that makes the slot, glue in the walnut just proud of the surface and sand smooth. The top was done in two steps, across the grain first (width), sanded smooth then rout and install the longer strips.

I don’t need one of these but I need to build one for the heck of it! This is a great look.

I have to say, “Sharp”. I don’t know if its just a good picture, but that seems very vivid. It would look very nice sitting in my house. I will favorite this and come back to it when someone orders a wine cabinet.

I try to keep the colors in photos as close to actual as possible. I do have a pretty good camera so I believe that helps. For me the time consuming thing is doing the plans for this type of build. If you would like I can post my planning here too, it might save you some time.

There is a lot to be said for taking pictures that accurately capture the look of a thing. I need to do that better. My wife has a very good camera and likes to consider herself a photographer. I think I will start having her take the pictures of my projects. How about I will send you a message if someone is interested in a wine cabinet.
