Filing Cabinet

After recently remodeling my foyer, the old whit junky filing cabinet that I had just didn’t look the best up against the rest of the room. So I decided to build my own wooden one to match. I used B-2 grade plywood from Menards, red oak from my stock, and Minwax golden oak stain and Minwax wipe on poly for a clear finish. I was actually shocked at how much money it required for materials. I had a total of roughly $375.00 in the project. $95.00 was hardware alone.

I was looking around for a metal file cabinet to store all my manuals and plans, etc. Then it hit me, I’m a woodworker why ain’t I building it out of wood? Great job and great inspiration, too!

That’s absolutely gorgeous, way better than the metal ones. A sure hit in the foyer. Great work!
