Thread: Cabinet for LOML

    Cabinet for LOML

    Hi everyone

    LOML wanted a cabinet to hang her necklaces, so this is what I came up with

    The doors are purple heart, the rest of the cabinet is maple. It doesn't show very well in the photo, but there is a narrow mirror on the left hand side.

    This was a first for me working with Purple heart, I like it a lot although I did have a bit of tear-out. Other firsts include using knife hinges, and wipe-on poly and micro mesh sanding pads. I like the finish results on the doors but I am glad I didn't keep track of the number of coats. I took them back down to 400 grit three times and re-coated, there still are a few grain ripples but I finally called it quits.

    LOML likes the results so that is the important thing!

    Nice cabinet Jay! Did you design it from scratch or work from plans?

    One happy LOYL - that's the real treasure!!
    Don't believe everything you think!

    Thanks guys!

    Jesse, I designed it, we basically took a bunch of her stuff and figured out the spacing and with that general grid in mind went for the cabinet size.
