This is a little bedside cabinet.
It is really an excercise in recycling, the oak for the sides and frame came from a skip, the veneered oak panel was left over from another job. The pippy oak top was an offcut from a coffee table I made, the lovely figured drawer front was found lurking at the end of a perfectly normal oak board, so I cut it off and saved it. Even the pulls are recycled from old sash windows, and I just happened to have 2 spare Blum hinges in the bottom of my toolbox.

I am now going to endevour to use as much of my offcut heap as possible.

The finish is Osmo oil and a quick coat of renaissance wax.

I really like the front edge. All the wood go great together. Nice job.
