Map Cabinet In White Oak
A friend of mine asked if I could build him a map cabinet. I had never heard of such a thing but began researching and learned they were cabinets with large narrow drawers used back in the day to hold maps flat. My friend is not a map collector but wanted it for his artwork and movie memorabilia posters. It is constructed from cabinet-grade white oak plywood and white oak hardwood. I got to practice dovetailing drawers and fine tuning wood runners for the drawer slides. I finished it with dye and GF Georgian Cherry gel stain. It has been one of my more challenging builds to date and am happy with how it turned out.
