This was done by hand and CNC so it gets put into “Everything Else” but its going to house my ever growing collection of materials for the Glowforge and I thought it might be of interest.
The overall build is 30 by 30 by 15 deep. Each drawer has about 26 by 13 by 2.5 inches of space. There are 10 pairs of 100 lb rated drawer slides and some snazzy antique label frame pull hardware. Seen here with human for scale:
The drawer fronts are a heavily figured cherry finished with Danish oil. It’s really got some insane grain to it.
And now I have to take all the drawers back out so I can lug it upstairs to it’s final resting spot… Maybe tomorrow.
In the meantime… a few assembly shots for people who are into that kind of thing:
jeez that figuring… i don’t think i’ve ever seen cherry that nice. it’s beautiful.
Such a nice cabinet - and that wood!
That is so way better than what I did… I got Lowe’s to cut me some shelves out of the cheapest plywood they had, and made shelves in the closet of my office where the laser is. And Lowe’s being Lowe’s, not all of them are cut correctly so some of them are teetering precariously on shelf pins. But your solution is so much prettier and more sturdy!
Incredibly beautiful. That wood grain is amazing.
Wow, that is fantastic. Great choice of wood.
Dang those are some sexy drawer fronts great project
Looks fantastically useful!
Nice attention to detail there. Those drawer fronts that are butterfly cuts are killer. Woodgrain is nature’s art, great storage solution. That is excellent work man.
Terrific! The wood is beautiful and the piece is executed well! Great job!
That is really beautiful. And thanks for sharing the build photos.
Outstanding results. Jealous!!
As a fellow woodworker, I have to say kudos. The choice of wood is fantastic. Love the figure. What I really appreciate is the way you cut the wood so the grain remains intact. Looks like you used two boards or one long one cut in half and then lined up. Love it. What did you cut the finger joints with? A jig or by hand?
Thanks @djfb The drawer fronts are from a single 1 inch thick Cherry board resawed to 3 slices at about 3/8 each on the bandsaw. I tried to mirror the grain as best I could, but one end was super dark. The finger joints where done on CNC using a jig I built that holds the panels to the front of the machine (like the store bought dovetail jigs usually do)
I have done lots of hand cut fingers and dovetails, but these days I lack the patience.
Beautiful and practical build! Thanks for sharing the finished and build photos!
Oh gosh, I want that! It’s so beautiful you could decorate a room around it. Can you imagine a whole craft room completely furnished like that? A girl can dream…
What a beautiful job on a beautiful piece. You deserve to be very proud of that cabinet.
Wow that must of taken a long time to make looks awesome nice job
