I have ... maybe 5 top woodworking builds that for one reason or another become some of my favorite builds, sometimes they start off that way, sometimes they just become that favorites as I build them, and this little accent table was has become one of my faves ...
I came into the project with more questions than answers, and there were many different ways I could have done things, some more simple, others more complex, but in the end, I had fun and made a little accent table that I loved to build and looks great !!

Some woodworking projects turn up unexpected results ... this is one of those builds. I absolutely loved making this project, the Boot Locker or mini trunk. It was fun to make and what I really liked was there were SO MANY different things I could do in making this, I am going to make more ...
And that was my biggest problem, what kind of joinery should I use, what kind of top, what woods could I use, how do I want to color the wood and what finish? ... so many questions and ideas ...

I do not ever recall ever seeing any kind of cabinet hardware made from Petrified Wood. I'm sure it exists somewhere, but must be very rare. I decided to make door pulls from petrified wood I collected a long time ago, what I wasn't prepared for was the whole new experience in learning and just how much work it would be.
I encountered may challenges with this project right at the start, and the first one was, what design did I want to make, because the would dictate what size the petrified wood pieces would need to be. I finally stumbled upon the semi angled appearance that I spotted somewhere, the thought it might be one of the easier kinds of pull, with not too much cutting and polishing involved.

Here's a project I have been wanting to build for a long time. It's called many things, a Whiskey Cabinet, a Wine Cabinet, Collectables Cabinet and even a Library Cabinet, so it clearly has lots of uses and the one I am making will be able to adapt to many different uses simply by changing the inside shelving configuration which is easily done
by using a "pull-out" system, so any kind of shelving unit can be inserted according to use. This unit is what is known as a "floating top" because at first glance, the top appears to be floating above the legs.
