Walnut w/plexiglass and brass
A friend had a collection of collectable spoons that her grandmother had
given her and had no place to store them or show them off, so I decided
to make her this Spoon Cabinet for Christmas.
I decided to use plexiglass rather than glass for the door because
it was easier to work with. I designed the cabinet after looking
at available ones on the internet. All I could find were cheap
pine cabinets that were stained to a "walnut or oak" finish.
I wanted this to be made out of a real hardwood, so I chose
Walnut for its deep color and grain design.
The hardest part was cutting the racks to hold the spoons. At first I just
eyeballed the dimensions and built the box, but when I got it all together
the holes were too large and the spoons just fell thru !
So in a last minute rush I cut new racks and had it done just in time for Christmas.
I was pretty pleased with the way it came out.
