I've been wanting (needing) more storage in our little master bath for years. I finally decided this weekend that I was going to 'get-r-done'. The adjoining bedroom has shaker influenced furniture so I wanted to carry that theme into the bath. That meant (for me anyhow) dovetailed cabinet with a flat panel frame-and-panel inset door. However, all our furniture is pine and I wanted something a little more exciting.
After some digging around in the wood pile I found a maple board a neighbor gave me about 8 years ago. It was the right size and thick enough to resaw, so I figured I'd give it a try. First hurdle, I've tried resawing on my old BS and never had any luck. It was time to try the new saw. The Rikon 18" ate through it like butter and gave me two flat pieces that nearly brought tears to my eyes!
I couldn't wait to glue them up and see what I had. I'm pretty pleased.
The first picture is the panel just sanded. In the second picture it's wearing a spit coat of dewaxed shellac. I'm planning on completing this cabinet over the next 2 weeks. I'll try to post pictures along the way.
