This is a past project I completed in February 2013 in my old shop in MN. It was made by request for my lovely bride for an entrance area. Later that year we moved to TN and I spent about 4 years shopless. It is still use in the entrance area of our current home in Adams, TN.

My original Sketchup drawing for this cabinet can be downloaded from the 3D Warehouse here:

Beautiful! Love the clean and simple design and flake. What was the finish you used?

The finish was a generous coat of Watco Danish Oil allowed to dry a week. Light sanding and then 3 coats of wipe on polyurethane. Light sanding at 400 after each coat of poly and then a final coat of paste wax. That is my general approach to finishing with some variation depending on wood choice and desire for gloss or satin.

Well done. There are a lot of projects here that are simply not my concept of woodworking (furniture and the occasional cabinet) or a lamp or coat rack…furnitureish items. I have learned through the years that “my” version of woodworking is nothing special, not right or wrong, just my taste and that lots of folks make all kinds of things (bowls, cutting boards, etc), but that doesn’t stop me from being happy when I see a furniture item. I like the piece. Clean lines and the wood drawers slide is an extra bonus.

Nice piece of cabinetry there. I would call that Red Oak by the ray fleck though.

Being shopless isn’t much fun.

Thanks BRD! Admittedly the purists can quibble over the dovetails not being hand cut but I’m proud of the hand made hard maple dovetail drawer slide even if I did use a router table to make it. I wanted the whole piece to resemble an early 20th century interpretation of 19th century Shaker furniture.

Thanks for the complement. You can call it Red Oak if you want but it is definitely White Oak.

Being shopless was just different. I had to focus on building my wife her basement pottery studio first since that is what she does… well not really for a living but extra income in the pursuit of making her art. http://www.flamingmud.biz/fmp/ and I followed that up with a kiln room in a corner of the garage and then a massive deck expansion and landscaping all the while saving to build the shop I wanted. I’m in the new shop now but I seem to mostly be working on projects to get it just like I want it in preparation for retirement in 5 years. I’m about ready to make some serious hardwood sawdust soon though.

ya know we hear it here all the time,if it’s not done with hand tools it’s not real woodworking,i say BS,if woodworkers 150 years ago had power tools you know they would have used em.there beautifully done period.
