Newest Project

I completed a woodworking project a week or so ago and never posted pictures. Here it is:

I really like the off-center doors. Again, I’m seeing an asian design influence come out in some of my work. I’m not sure where it comes from, but I like it!

The cabinet is quartersawn red oak, soft maple, mahogany, and ebony (door pulls). The QSRO is finished with dye and stain and the whole cabinet was given several coats of shellac. It matches the music cabinet very nicely.

This is a smaller project than I normally work on, but I had a lot of fun doing it. There’s something to be said for working on a more reasonably-sized piece.

I was amazed that the whole cabinet was 9 pieces of wood (11 if you count the handles). I got all of the wood cut in a couple of sessions and thought “is that it?” Finishing something this size was nice, too, since it didn’t take up the whole garage for two weeks (like the bookcase did).
