This year for Christmas I built a small whiskey cabinet for my father-in-law. The case and door frame are from a single board that I picked up last summer. It had been milled to 3/4" and was a bit cupped so it wouldn't work for the side tables which need 3/4"+ parts. I was able to get all the parts for the cabinet straight and still end up with a heavy 1/2" which I think looks nice on a cabinet this size.
The door panel is book matched walnut from a another board I had stashed away.
I am really pleased with how the door came out.
The case is dovetailed with the top and bottom protruding out past the case edges.
I finished the cabinet with General finished Enduro Var. This was the first time I have used this and I was quite pleased with it. It is a water borne varnish with a bit of color to it. It certainly looks much better than other water borne finishes I've used while still drying quickly and not being unpleasant to work with. I may try spraying it on the next project I complete.
The door is mounted with knife hinges from Brusso. They were a real pleasure to work with.
I used a small brass pull, also from Brusso, which I think goes well with cherry.
A small brass catch is mounted behind the pull to keep the door shut.
