Lumber Used 

I created my own using scraps of oak plywood leftover from my kitchen remodel. I assembled it with glue and brad nails. 

Finishing Technique 

Small projects like this allow me to try finishes I wouldn't normally use. I decided to try Minwax Water-Based Wood Sheen in Colonial Walnut. The color was beautiful but it dried way too fast for me to get a nice “wipe mark free” finish. The hinges were regular steel hinges that I primed with rusty metal primer and painted oil rubbed bronze to match the handles and the sash lock on the front. The only thing I can't decide on is what to stencil on the front… Any suggestions??
