The Boss wanted a cabinet she had seen at Odd Lots….$300…..Think “Flat Pack” sort of cabinet.

Rounded up a supply of Ash, and a supply of Pine. Doors are frame & Raised Panel. Top is 3/4” x 16” x 57”.

Stands about 41”

Was designed to hold an electric Fireplace insert. Finish is a Weathered Oak stain, then a coat of amber shellac, then a coat of Gloss Poly.

This is what she saw at Odd Lots…

My version might be a little better…

Absolutely Stunning!

Love It! Been waiting to see that insert in place. I am not disappointed.

Another fine piece from the Dungeon Workshop. I hope you are putting a maker’s mark and date on the pieces that you create, Bandit. I agree with Lew that it looks even nicer with the insert in place, and working hard to keep the chill out.

Nice job Bandit! Furniture without particle board, can’t get that at OddLots. Well done on the raised panels.

Good job Bandit. Looks like it belongs there. Makes the room feel warm just looking at that.
