I started this project on the weekend of January 25th, and here on March 6th my camera cabinet sits completed and filled with my gear. It turned out WAY better than I hoped and expected and I don’t have to hide it in a corner. I normally wouldn’t have gone for the gold hardware, but we wanted it to match the piano that’s in the same room.
It’s made of Red Oak, stained with 2 coats of Minwax Red Oak oil-based stain, and finished with 2 coats of polyurethane.
This photo reminds me that I need to get the magnetic door closers.
Here’s the inside – storage for my camera bags on the bottom and lenses on the shelf (all but one lens, which I used to take this).
And the drawer is full of the numerous accessories, plus the camera.
Feels good to finally have it done and to be happy with the results. Photos from the build here. A big thanks to dad for coming over tonight to help me move it upstairs, it’s a little too big for one person.
