A little cabinet to store K-cups. Its a christmas present for my mother in-law and father in-law. Made from walnut and butternut. Holds 45 k-cups. The last 2 picture are a little present i found inside the butternut board. Its a lead shot from a shot-gun blast. Glad it was lead and not steel like today. It was four annular rings from the pith and I counted 45 rings off the board. That means that this board was around 50-55 years old and had a lead shot in it the whole time. It took mother nature 50 years to beautify this wood I hope that I did it justice.
Finished with three coats of tung oil

Thanks for looking

Nice cabinet. Never worked with butternut, but I really like the look of it. Is it easy to use? I’d like to steal your design and make one for myself.

Well I be. That looks just like the K cup box I built next weekend. That looks really nice and something like that would be a great addition to our Coffee bar.

Now there’s a great idea. Never thought of that before but glad that you did. You have inspired me. Your cabinet is not only extremely beautiful… extremely functional, too! Great job and thanks for sharing it.

That’s cool. I found a bullet in peice of oak not too long ago. We decided it was prob a 22, but I didn’t think to see what it was made off. I will have to check that out. It had the crimp marks from the casing still. Beautiful box by the way:)
