Bill F from Vancouver, WA Posted January 16, 2010
I built this cabinet for my wife shortly after the article came out in Wood Magazine. I used red oak lumber with red oak plywood in the panels for the top pieces. For the door panels, I laminated two pieces of 1/4-in. walnut plywood together back to back, then trimmed the four pieces to size. Rather than use the lift mechanism, in its place under the cabinet in the knee hole I added a narrow shelf for my wife's smaller sewing machine. I finished the cabinet with Min-Wax Golden Pecan followed by three coats of Johnson's Paste Wax. She leaves her large Elna on the top center section, stows her serger in the space to the right, and her smaller Morse on the knee hole shelf. The only thing she does not like about the cabinet is the locator pins on the tops of the doors. If she doesn't hit their socket inserts dead on, they leave small scratches on the flip-over panels. All in all, I invested about $350.00 in material and hardware.

I used walnut, walnut plywood, walnut burl veneer and rock maple for the drawer sides. I have close to $1500 in materials. I paid a bit extra to have 1/64 wood backing on the burl veneer but it made it much easier to work with. I used hide glue to put the veneer to 5/8's Baltic birch ply wood. I also ordered the manual lift that Rockler sells. It is the way to go.I added a framed-in area around the opening to put three different inserts.I used Watco dark walnut danish oil.(click to see full-size picture in new window)I did box joints for the drawers.(click to see full-size picture in new window)This photo shows the three different inserts for the top I made:(click to see full-size picture in new window)And here is the finished product:

The plans are excellent and easy to follow. I did some minor changes to accommodate flush door closure, mobile wheel base, and stronger support for a heavy serger. Overall, I stayed as true to the design plans as possible. I used three coats of Minwax Peacan polyurethane.
