2X4 Whiskey Cabinet
I made this whiskey cabinet and cup from a single 8 foot 2x4
Last pics first! Here it is and here is what's left. i tried to make handle pulls for the cabinet but they were too big and bulky
bought the last 2x4 at HD figured i would give Lowes a shot.
here are my scribbled plans.
Took some measurements of some of my favorites. Always like to keep whiskey in the garage incase need to thin paint sterilize a wound or just get smashed.
cut to length for the cabinet
first time using this Rockler Jig. it was kind of fun
glue up of the doors
book matched cabinet doors.
cutting off one side of th pretty book match
So I cut another 2x4 as a test for how I wanted to do the cup.
didn't like the vertical glue up. i didn't have the skill or the sharp enough tools to turn the pine so i scrapped it
decided on a vertical glue up so my tools could reach for hollowing
Hide the seam in an epoxy inlay

cnc-ed first door
cnc second door and it was crooked. BOO
flipped it CNCed the other side.
you can see the messed up crooked cnc shamrock on this door. also not enough material to make the back or the french cleat to hang on my wall.
final glue up of cabinet after sanding
the epoxy on the cup. used tape to make a tunnel the whole way around it
stained everything with Golden Pecan
Epoxy on the cup so it can hold whiskey
more epoxy on the cup
lacquer on the doors
I bought these hinges because i had never used invisible hinges before. my cabinet doors weren't thick enough so the offset from the cabinet a lot.
Wound up cutting a strip from the 2X4 so they sit level off the cabinet also repurposed some knobs from our master bath renovation
Thats it more beauty pics to come
