    Coffee Station

    Built this for my office: a place for a coffee pot or electric kettle and some storage above and below. Cherry and Waterlox OSF.

    Charles, the piece will serve you well - did you resaw the cherry to get the bookmatched panels? Pretty & functional!

    Very nice. Did you make provisions for the power cords to go out the back?

    Thanks all!

    Mark, yes. The back pieces, lower door panels, and side panels are 1/4" resawn from 4/4 - 5/4 material.

    Lee, also yes. In fact there's a power strip in the lower cabinet for the typically short appliance cords to plug in.

    There is a lot to like about that piece. Nice proportions, clean workmanship, beautiful color. The glass in the upper doors is a nice touch, too. Very well done.

    Now you need a cherry desk and credenza to compliment the coffee station. Well done!!

    Thanks again, everyone!

    In fact the employer-supplied furniture in my office includes a desk and credenza...in imitation cherry. I'm glad I was able to make do with real cherry! Maybe sooner or later I'll upgrade the desk and credenza too.

    Thank you. I cropped and resized the photos with Paint Shop Pro, a Windows application, then saved them as new copies. Even if the photos are sideways when I begin, I can rotate them as needed.

    There are other applications that can do the job as well.
