My daughter wanted a cabinet to hold liquor, glasses, mixers and a place to mix drinks. She has a small house, so this is what I came up with. Tried to match existing furniture so made it with maple and gun stock stain. Liquor and mixers on the bottom, glasses etc on top and a pull out shelf to do the mixing work. It works for her.

-- What to make next. Hmmm.

Looks great! Will look even better with a few bottles of bourbon in it!

That’s great! I’ve been looking at purchasing something similar to this for my new apartment to store liquor, glasses, a drawer for “tools”, and a small wine rack. I think your’s is a nice blend of what I’ve been thinking about. I’ve abandoned my tools while I’ve been in the Navy, so until I get a big enough place of my own and some extra cash flow for new, nicer tools, I’ll have to forgo building my own furniture yet… Very nice cabinet!

Thanks gentlemen. MMarper90, you only live 50 miles down the road from me. If I can ever be of any help please let me know. I also spent time in the Navy back in 62 – 66 so I understand the limitations.

Any project, strictly dedicated for the housing of booze, has a big thumbs-up from me.
Well done.

Nice work – I really like the curvy details along the top and bottom. Fill ‘er up and I’ll like it even better ;-)

Very nice, great craftsmanship. I especially like the pull out shelf, adds nice functionally to the piece.
