Custom Curio Cabinet
My wife needed a palce to display her collection of Carousel horses. We could not find a display cabinet which would hold all the items. Looks like it was up to be to build one.
The cabinet is made from quarter sawn oak whcih were actually discarded leftovers from a cabinet shop and oak veneer plywood.. The cabinet is built in three pieces due to the size and weight. The top and center section are 20X16. The base is 28X20. The unit stands 80 inches high.
The top holds was designed to hold a 12 inch carousel. The center has two glass shelves and the bottom shelf, all the single horses are displayed there. The base is a storage area.
The back of the top and center are mirrors to reflect all the pieces.
It is finished with Early American stain and 4 coats of polyurethane.
The finished unit weighs approx. 150lbs.
