this is necklace cabinet per a clients request. body is made of red oak, back panel is from pine (not my choice) but i shall do as requested. exterior dimensions are 16×22 x3.5 inches. the stain is provincial, personally i would not have stained but wood that customer supplied was in pretty bad shape. it has been laying on his garage floor for awhile and the oak had some water damage i salvaged what i could. i think that some of the oak that i thought i used might have still had some damage, and the stain kind of highlighted these areas and gave it some character. this is my first cabinet of any type so please critisize positively and of course of the negative variety also.

I have been waiting for someone to give me an idea for how to use some Curly Walnut that I resawed in to 2 bookmatched panels-6” wide by 23” long. I may use Curly Maple for the rails and stiles. I like what you did with the design. I hope you can redo yours with wood you really like. You did a good job with someones ‘wood’.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
