Not new to the creek, but my first post.

Rough padouk converted into something for my garden ... to store some small items.

Welcome to the posting side of the 'Creek, Raf! And that is indeed, a great looking project! (How about some pics of the interior, too... ;) )

Great looking cabinet. In fact it looks too good
for gardening supplies.I would also like to see
some interior pictures.

Welcome. Nice project. Be interesting to see it after a few years in the weather.

Thanks Jim, no pictures of the inside available yet.

I started with an okumé plywood box and covered it with padouk.

The tenons I used are a copy from some pictures I saw on the SMC some weeks ago ... double loose tenon for the doors.

Sides are a copy of the deck where it stands on (SS screws)

No stationary tools (yet) in my garage/ workshop but I think I will get a planer / jointer very fast now

Some powertools and the information on SMC was all it took.

Welcome to the creek Raf, you have quite an introduction there, and you started on the right foot by posting pictures.

That is a nice looking cabinet. You aren't really going to stick that out in a garden are you. :( Well, maybe your garden doesn't look like mine!:rolleyes:
