While we are waiting for the glass to arrive which will complete the liquor cabinet I started the next project which is a cabinet for the wine fridge. It is a fairly straight forward cover and I will be using African mahogany with some brass inlay on the legs. The brass is 1/4” square brass stock set into a 1/4” routered groove. Paul
I made this in my tiny little shop (man, I’d really LOVE to have a window). Two are #4 hard maple shaker boxes with African mahogany tops. Also made two #3 shaker boxes from walnut with butternut tops. Hit them with some natural danish oil and after they dry for about 3 days or so, I’ll shoot them with about 4 coats of a satin poly. The hardest part for me is milling the stock to 1/16th of an inch....I seen to be able to get a better result on my table saw instead of the bandsaw....anyhow, I hope all youse guys are staying safe and healthy! I can’t wait until this comes to an end.
Had a chance to get in the shop so I put together some scraps I had to make this band saw box.The bulk of the box is African mahogany with a strip of cherry down the middle. As things moved along I got a bit ahead of myself and started to cut the drawers out of the top slider before cutting off the front and back . Found enough cherry to make the front and back of the top slider using the damaged piece as a template. The handles are black walnut.
The face frame and raised panel door are to be made of either African mahogany or Sapele. What's the difference between the two. Is one or the other easier to work with? More stable ect? I'll be doing my own stock prep.
