Barn Red Midcentury Modern Cowboy Cabinet; Part Two!

This is a continuation of Barn Red Midcentury Modern Cowboy Cabinet; Part One

Back to finishing this cabinet….

Then the drawer fronts were chosen. Here is the material after planing down for thickness:

These boards were then ripped to width, cut to length, sanded and attached to the gray stained, black leather bottomed drawers:

Sam installed 10 drawers, and were left with 3 drawers to install on the top, but the leftover gap for the three drawers were too large to install only 3 more boxes, so he quickly made another drawer box.

Here are the faces for the last 4 boxes:

With drawer fronts attached, he slowly installed each of the last 4 drawers with precision and customization for each piece.

Here are some gorgeous close ups:

The waterfall effect is my absolute favorite. This is where you take a piece of wood and cut it just right so you can see the characteristic patterns continue from the top down the side.
