This is a wall unit I just finished. I used partly clear pine part poplar. The face of the cabinet is tung and grove with a bead. It all needs to be painted still. The fire place was build by a mason. We collected the rock at the beach here in Oceanside. The mantel and hearth I cut out of Sebastian Sandstone. The design was done by my wife.

Oh, by the way, there are secret little doors in the side of one of one of the compartments?


I had this project posted at for a while.

Wow, that will hold a lot of stuff!! Very well thought out and executed. Great job of scribing around the rock.

What color are you going to paint it? I would suggest a warm red with a hint of blue. Just me, though. bbqKing.

Beautiful work. I need to do something like this too. Ideas galore.

Thanks for your nice comments.

Bbqking, the frame is painted already the color all of it will be. The focus should not be the cabinets, but rather the fireplace.

Thos, I got ahead of the mason with my woodworking, so he had to scribe to the wood.

Very nice unit that ties in nicely with the fireplace and the secret doors remain a secret.
