Hello All I am very new to forums in fact thsi is the first time I ahve ever posted on a forum but I need some assistance so what the heck.

I am not a proffesional when i comes to wood working I play around and make some basic to ntermeidate projects. I can pretty much build anything that I have plans for however getting the plans is sometime sthe most difficult part.

I am wanting to build a spirits cabinet very simular to the PArker Spirits Cabinet from Crate and Barrel for my Girlfriend but after looing at it I would need to draft some design plans in order to do so. I was wondering if there is anyone on here that is capable of doign thsi or if someone coculd point me in th right direction in being able to get the palns drawn up for me based on the picture and specifications listed on their website.

First, welcome to Lumber Jocks. It’s a great place to come for advice and inspiration.
Stev3895, part of the fun of woodworking is to make something your own. Very little woodwork is done that does not somehow resemble another’s work. If you can sketch and have a little knowledge of joinery, then a project of this scope is not beyond a good challenge to you. Part of the skill of woodworking is to visualize the finished product while visualizing how to put it together. You may have to do a lot of sketching, throwing away a lot of rejects, but you will quickly focus on a path that is workable for you. There are those of us who will volunteer our time, and others charge for it, but we would all like to help you. However, helping you may consist of teaching you how to fish rather than handing you a fish. You know what plans should encompass, so get out the pad and give it a go. We’re here to help if you hit a brick wall. I use the free version of Trimble Sketch-Up. It actually has the capability to draw accurately over a photograph (jpg, png, etc). It’s way cool.
So can I encourage you to stretch a bit for this design?
