The cabinet is of two sections. As you can see the section is the bar with glass shelves and on the doors shelves for glasses or what ever will fit. All exteriors are raised panel. the interior is finished using 5/16” thick Hickory engineered prefinished flooring. The bottom section has four full depth full extension auto close drawers on the right side. The left side is actually a door that looks like another set of drawers when closed but hides two shelves with a small microwave. I made a molding to cover where the top and bottom sections join

Nicely done raised panel fronts. That inside sure is sharp with the lights on and the glassware and bottles against the wood don’t-cha-think? The contrasting grains at the glue joints adds to the look. Everything looks straight and square so you obviously waited to partake only after it was done.
Thanks for posting this fine piece.

Great looking piece. I really like working with hickory, shop smells like barbecue. Very nicely done.

Great looking Bar. Hickory is hard to mill. I built a complete kitchen out of hickory and don’t plan to ever work with it again. Beautiful wood but much to splintery. Too much tear out when routing.
