Walnut and Brass Epoxy Whisky Cabinet
I recently built this Walnut Whisky Cabinet using a technique from a previous FWW article. The body of the cabinet is shop sawn walnut veneer, with the grain wrapping around 3 sides. The front of the cabinet is composed of bookmatched walnut veneer tiles. I cut each pair of tiles at once to ensure they are the same size, and then laid them down on a paper template that had adhesive contact paper placed on it with the sticky side up. This allowed me to set each tile down and ensure it wouldnt move. I then glued them down to a plywood substrate using my vacuum press, with a sheet of backer veneer glued to the other side.
Once taken out of the vacuum press, I had to go in and clean the excess epoxy out of the grooves, and then pour in brass colored epoxy to fill the gaps. I added some gold powder to the brass epoxy to really make it pop. The entire cabinet was finished with two coats of Osmo Polyx Oil.
