    bathroom towel cabinet

    as part of the over all bathroom/bedroom furniture project, the wife insisted that the bathroom towel cabinet be built first. i bought all the red oak for it yesterday, and will be marking it off for rough cutting. after that is done, it will be planing to thickness, i'm planning on inch thick sides and top. this cabinet is based on the roycroft colony's magazine/book shelf.

    Towel cabinet or not, you've gotta do some kind of CNC engraving or something on it!!!

    ok bill, you asked for it! over the last couple of days i found and coded a mackintosh rose motif for the sides. having checked with the wife , she approved of the design, and the finish (blo and spar varnish). there will be 2 of these on each side. today i got all of the parts rough cross cut (thank goodness for the sled), and one edge jointed. then i ran a nice looking bit of the waste through the planer to get a smooth surface, and set it up on the cnc. got that started, and a few minutes later, there it was, one of the two engravings for the sides. gave it quick hit with blo, and spray shellac. tomorrow it will be ripping to proper widths, planing, cutting to final widths, and engraving. herself decided that the flowers will be going in an outward direction on each of the side boards. just wait until you see what i'm doing with the dining chairs bill. see what you started....

    Ohhh Bill beat me to it.

    My first comment was going to be some sort of CNC work on it.

    I have a head FULL of ideas.
