If you have been following Paul’s work for Sellers’ Home, you will know that the latest series covers the dining area for any home. Having recently completed the dining table and six chairs, Paul moved on to building a wall-hung drinks cabinet from solid oak. Paul put this together as a course for cabinet making that includes building the main cabinet and then door and drawer construction with panels, dovetail joints, and mortise and tenon joinery. He walks you through every step to ensure a successful outcome, and the result is a beautiful cupboard that can be used for storing many things around any home or office.

    This looks like something I need in my house! I look forward to seeing this project begin.

    Hi, I was wondering why Paul never uses drawer slides (like side slides, metal or wooden) on his projects, are they unnecessary for this kind of furniture?

      I find them both unneccessary and a space waster for this type of furniture. Modern slides also seem to force the you to use a front overlay which I am not fond of. As to wood rails he has used them on some designs, but as long as you can have a support web you don’t really need either.

      Paul uses drawer’s rails in the “Traveller joiner’s toolbox” because the drawers are at the top of an open space.

    So timely! I am just starting to design our bathroom remodel which needs a new vanity and medicine cabinet. This looks like the perfect thing!

    I am curious, is there a reason for the door stops to be on the bottom instead of at the top? Looks like that would be a trip hazard when removing bottles from the lower shelf?

      I’ve been “apprenticing” under through his videos for many years now. One of the best concepts that I have learned from him is parsimony – simple is generally better. Drawer slides actually add complexity: Side mount? Under mount? Soft close? Which slide manufacturer is best? Accounting for thickness of the slide? Slide failure?

      Nah…. All of my drawers in dressers, end tables, and cabinets are made using his methods and they slide beautifully smooth.

      It looks like the stops are magnetic. Given the location of the handle, which is needed for comfort, if you place them at the top of the doors, there is a chance that the door would need to twist before the magnets would release. I had that happen on one cabinet door that I made. It isn’t a problem for the cabinet, but it doesn’t feel smooth, doesn’t feel nice. The door feels springy when opening. With the magnets where Paul placed them, everything will feel taught, rigid, and smooth. Just a guess.

      I use a circular neodymium magnets recessed into the bottom or top of the door stiles (or both) and the opposite polarity in the cabinet frame. That way there is nothing projecting above the surfaces. The magnets never actually touch as they sit 1-2 mm apart.

    I truly would like to make this for the bathroom, as my autumn project. I can’t wait to see the following videos, so I can start planning the job, finding the wood and so on.
    I also would like to modify it adding a mirror between two cabinets.

    Love that inlaid banding on the frame! Haven’t seen that before. Looking forward to seeing this one come together. Am a little worried about a potential design flaw though: not nearly enough bourbon in there…..

    Where can we download the pdf with the parts list and the plans?

    Cabinetry and drawers in one project. Frame and panel doors too. Hell yeah. Thank you.

    This is a really beautiful design. Thinking ahead, I’m hoping to build a small wardrobe. Would this cabinet be a good basis to build a wardrobe?

    Any timeline on when the drawings will be made available?

    I watched the free drawer-making excerpt this morning—beautiful!— and was wondering why Paul chose to screw the drawer front on rather than lap-dovetail a single piece onto the drawer carcass. Does anyone happen to know? Thanks!
