    SWLigler,

    Nice job. Looks like oak.

      Re: project pics

      I just last night finished the first element of a complete office remodel (built-in). Birch ply with bloodwood and maple trim. What a BEAR to finish without my outdoor spray cabinet......4 brushed coats of satin poly followed by 2 wiped-on coats. It took about 70 minutes for each application. The only thing left is hardware.

      I know, I know.....the door panels are sideways. I was going to make new ones but the customer wants to keep it!

          I hadn't noticed the panels till I read the note. That's a nice job you done there.

          I do appreciate the photos, sharing yours and everyones projects. I have been playing with woodworking most my life and am now in a position where I can get serious. It's good to see, with time and patience, that this type of work can be accomplished in a small home shop. I look forward to more photos...

              Thanks for the kind words of encouragement all......it means alot, although I still have somewhat of an inferiority complex looking at the fine work displayed in this forum.

              Wow.....while I was mounting the hinges, which I purchased from Rockler, I discovered that they are garbage (see photo). They were ALL like that...all bent-up with barrel damage. I have been looking all day on the internet for recessed, non-overlay hinges that reveal only the barrel and can be mounted on a face frame.

              I would greatly appreciate any advice on a reputable online dealer that carries quality cabinet hardware. Rockler has nothing.

              Thanks again all....

                Hey Zenophus. Sorry to hear about the quality of Rocker hardware!!! That's a fine cabinet you made. It's really nice. Don't even think twice about how it doesn't match up to the other fine woodworkers here. It's definately a beautiful heirloom piece!!


                My Dad's used Restoration Hardware many times, and loves the quality he gets. I found only this small section of hinges. http://www.restorationhardware.com/r...navAction=jump
                Don't know if that's what you're looking for or not.


                There's thousans of internet sites offering hardware. Unfortunately, I have no knowlege of how good any of them are!!! All I can say from personal experience is Restoration Hardware usually has good stuff.
                I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

                  go here and look at their catalog, probably every hardware you can imagine, never had a problem w/them prices are very decent. Been ordering w/them for 2 1/2 years now, huge, huge selection. And the second one I just started to deal w/ them, nice stuff too.

                    Re: project pics

                    Here's a Mission Bed I made a couple of years ago. All solid red oak with a provincial stain and satin poly. The "story" of it's construction can be found HERE.

                    After going through the pics this morning I found it remarkable how much my shop has changed and how many tools I have since aquired. I didn't even have a table saw!! Basically, the whole thing was built with a miter saw a dowel jig and a drill. (oops.....and a router, too)
