Library Card File Cabinet

Library Card File CabinetI have lurked on this site for a number of years but have never posted a project. I didn't believe any of my projects were worthy enough to post when compared to all of the great woodworking that is posted. However, I am proud of my latest project, a “library card file cabinet” made for a friend. She had looked for a couple of years but couldn't find what she wanted so I agreed to build it for her.The dimensions were made to fit her foyer and are 44”h x 49”w x 12”d. Stained white oak (per customer) finished with 4 coats lacquer for everything except the pullouts and top which are satin Arm R Seal. The 36 drawers just about kicked my butt! This definitely added to my skills and has given me confidence to try more furniture projects.

Custom Designed Live Edge Table & Base

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Custom Designed Live Edge Table & BaseThe debut of the live edge dining table is here! Three weeks of work went into this beast, as you saw my earlier posts about designing and constructing the radian base. I chose to stain it gray to compliment our tile floors. It was a custom leg profile I designed and template routed. The legs are 3” thick with mortised stretchers.The top was a joy to complete as well. It is a 72×34x1.5 monkeypod slab that was router-flattened, then stabilized with steel c-channel to keep it as such. The choice of Rubio Monocoat Pure really creates the figure pop I was looking for. After curing, I wet sanded with mineral spirits up to 1500 grit and buffed out with some carnauba wax, this thing is like glass to the touch. For those curious, I purchased the slab at West Penn Hardwoods in Catawba, NC.I'm also working on my photographic skills as well…being that a picture can be worth a thousand words…or a furniture sale. So, as always on my posts, feedback is needed…the good, the bad, the ugly…lemme have it straight!Have a great week y'all and gimme a follow on Facebook or Instagram at @docsdesignsfurniture.
