Worked on this end table/scotch cabinet that ended up being a Christmas gift for a good friend. The muntins and the glass were a first. I went with a walnut and Spanish Cedar combination. Appreciate all the tips, advice and ideas I continue to get from LJ.

Beautiful work. Love the wood selection they really compliment each other.

Design and construction look great, may be a bit small for intended purpose(I like my Scotch). The grain pattern and color matching is to mixed up IMO, could just be the Picture, think I would of found some wood with less contrast personally.

I agree with the grain and color comment. I was a better on selecting the walnut I’m using on my next build.

Nice work, I made a cabinet similar to this for guiness. As for the wood colour/combination it totally depends on the environment the piece is going into and the client it is for, I have a walnut/ maple theme in my living room and I made sure to pick boards with a similar grain and colour because that suited everything I have including my floor but the blond walnut in this piece picks up the light floor and suits the couch well.

I was so focused on the design and construction that I missed some color and grain detail. Which is why I appreciate this site.

You earned a spot on my favorites, I love it, almost as much as I love a great smokey peaty Whisky!

Very nice looking whisky cabinet! I’m sure your friend will stock it with some fine single malts and enjoy it and them!
