Here’s a little cabinet I made for our bathroom to hold toilet paper and ladies unmentionables lol,l it was made from a gnarly quarter sawn board that dried extremely cupped. I had chainsaw milled it some 7 years earlier, it was a fun project. I’ve include my YouTube link below for you to see a full video on how I made it.

Have a
Happy shop day

That is an awesome job- the video is one of the best woodworking videos I have watched on youtube.

Excellent work using the oak you cut several years before.

Thanks for posting.

Gnarly sums it up. Nice cabinet, nice build video. BTW I am from an age that Gnarly was “very good”

I want to learn how you put that glue back in the bottle like you showed. ;-)

the cabinet is beautiful and I wasn’t sure about the top til I looked at it a couple times – now I’m sure

It looks great, the bevel cut makes it fit (jmho)

Thanks Bruce,

Yeah kinda like pushing a square peg through a round hole, it put up a fight, but I tamed the gnarl! Lol
