This is for my daughter-in-law on her birthday. The plan came out of Woodsmith and it is my first attempt at making furniture.

I learned a great deal doing this project and hope to continue to grow in my woodcraft skills. What a wonderful hobby! What a wonderful daughter-in-law!

This was a family affair with my wife staining and varnishing and my son helping me with fabrication.

It beats the heck out of me how some people can turn out something this beautiful on their “first attempt at making furniture”!

I agree with Charlie, Can’t say some of my first attempts at making furniture looked that good. Nice job and I’m sure your daughter-in-law loves it. Thanks for sharing.

Great cabinet. Sure is better than going to Walmart and picking out something made with particle board.

The family did a great job.

This is an excellent piece that even a seasoned pro would be proud to turn out. It has a nice design to it and your wife did a good job of finishing the piece.

Nice job.

Very nice family affair, always makes the finished product more enjoyable when it is visible proof of a long lasting bonding.
