Padauk Stereo Cabinet
Ok here is my cabinet. I haven't finished the door yet, I'll do that next week when my wife and child are out of town. The walls are padauk and raised panels. The bottom shelf is transtint'd birch 3/4" ply. It is secured in a half inch dado, glued and screwed. The screws are covered up by the bottom trim. The shelves are 3/4" birch ply edge banded with padauk. The back is 3/4 in ply as well and set inside a 3/4 in rabbit so it's hidden. The top 3 shelves are adjustable. I cut a bunch of little 1 inch aluminum pins that push into holes on the inside of the cabinet. I used a piece of peg board as a template to line up the wholes. The bottom is on a slider so I can easily get access to the back of my stereo receiver. I finished it with 3 coats of sprayed on lacquer.
I love this forum; I want to thank everyone that answered any of my many many many questions. You all had a hand in making this thing. Thanks.
