Close up of the pull on the whiskey cabinet. Kind of freestyled it, all I knew was that I wanted to use the black cord I found. I think it matches the look of the cabinet well. πŸ₯ƒπŸ˜Ž

#shiplap isn’t just for HGTV. I’m using it for the back of this #whiskeycabinet . 1/4” thick ash will complement the walnut nicely. Pieces won’t be glued in, as the shiplap allows for wood to expand and contract with the seasons. 😎πŸ₯ƒ

Finished up another box. This one a little smaller than the last couple. I made it for my brother-in-law to keep his guitar picks in. Added fabric to the bottom and really like the accent. 😎

Mid-Century Ottoman // Woodworking and Upholstery

I made this ottoman from some Bubinga I had lying around and some simple fabric and foam from the craft store. I based this design on a lot of Adrian Pearsall's ottoman designs. I was also eager to try out a miter clamping technique I saw from Shaun Boyd. Here's a link to his video:
