    Your sewing cabinet is wonderful, Karen. DH is a great woodworker. Did he have a pattern for it or make one up himself?

    What a beautiful cabinet.
    Your hubby is a gifted carpenter.
    Is that Oak? Such detailed grain in the wood.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Beautiful Cabinet. Tell your DH that he did a fantastic job. My DH does not do that kind of stuff, I had to pay a bundle for mine.

    He is a great woodworking! He purchased the plan from Rockler.

    Thank you for the compliment.

    The cabinet is Red Oak with Minwax Special Walnut #224 and clear Polyurethane. The drawer components are made with Alder and finished with shellac.

    To have any piece of furniture custom made is very expensive. I'm so fortunate that my DH is so talented.

    Maybe the "hmmmmm" is giving him an idea for a gift for you.

    My DH is so tickled everyone likes the cabinet.

    Honey, that man is a definite keeper!!! I love the way it folds all up so you can hide everything if you need to. And when it's all folded up, it looks like a very expensive credensa (is that the right word?)

    Sorry to disappoint those who want one made, but think this will be the last cabinet.
    I have a long "Honey Do" list of furniture projects for him.

    Thank you.......I think it's pretty nice too.

    The bottom left drawer is sized to hold patterns. At the far right is a shelf to store my serger in.

    Beautiful cabinet!! Your husband did a great job.

    Have you had a chance to load it up and take it for a test drive? I think you are going to have MANY happy hours sewing there!!!

    Well, if hubby won't take orders to make them, will you rent him out and ship him to us? :)
