Bear Jr’s Craft Cabinet (Bethany’s Christmas Gift)


Last Year Bear Jr made some Bandsaw Jewelry Boxes for his Wife Bethany, for Christmas.
This year he made her a Beautiful Multi-functioning Maple Cabinet for her Crafts.

The first few pictures below show the Cabinet & Bethany smiling, as she received her present.
The other pictures show all the special “Maple Burl” he put into the cabinet. It’s hard to show in pictures, but he Hand Picked the "Raw in the Rough" Maple, with as much "Burl" as he could get.

The cabinet has an outlet & USB port built in, and lights in the top. Everything opens like a Book, with a fold-down Table.

The shelves are not shown in these pictures, but there are shelves in all the upper sections, and also in the sections in the swing-out Doors.


Bethany Loves it, and I’m sure will put it to good use.

Thanks for looking, Guys!!

Impressive craftsmanship! Great eye on the selection of materials. (Looks like a CNC router off to the side).

Thank You!

That sure is nice. You and your son are talented wood workers!
Thank You Justin!!
It's in his Blood:
My Dad was a Self-employed Carpenter for 40 years.
I helped him in my younger days, then graduated from 3 years in Cabinetmaking in Tech School. Then worked for a Buddy of mine in his shop for 10 years.
Then had my own Cabinet Shop for 15 years.
Bear Jr went through that same Tech School Class, helped me when 2 guys were needed, and he did the Spraying on ALL My Cabinets. (Kitchens, Vanities, and Entertainment centers).
Then he's had his Tower business for 20 years, but Covid slowed things up, so he started a specialty Woodworking Shop. He has one employee for that.
He still has his Tower Business, but with less employees than he had.
And Thanks for the Like.

Bear
