Ty at work shows a picture and says can you make this… He picked walnut over the cherry that a commercial manufacturer does and we were off. Seven weeks later, all hand made moldings and doors… here he has it. 40 bd. ft. of walnut, two sheets of 3/4 walnut veneer plywood… a sheet of 1/4 and a sheet of 1/2. Lots of glue, screws and biscuit-fastened face frame. Solid walnut paneled doors, drawer, moldings and face with dovetailed poplar drawer box. I found sheet granite-like laminate for the door on the inside to give some protection for mixing drinks on the door/table. A whole sheet of plywood in the cross hatched wine rack in the bottom. Wine glass holders made of solid walnut, LED puck lights and an outlet inside for the electric wine opener. 46×18 x 68. Finish is Watco Danish Oil to even the colors of the walnut and 4-5 coats of lacquer sealer and semi-gloss lacquer.

You obviously weren’t sampl’n the merchandise while working on this. Nice job. Good idea about the finish and protecting from spills.
