    I may have other plans for the "toothpick/tweezers" area, but suspect that'll be on the MkII version.

    Clearly, I need to add more hanging hooks (and buy more SAKs!!!), but here's the cabinet with some "knifey goodness" in it!

    Thanks for the comments. I DID enjoy making it (or did I?). Now that I think about it, MOST projects just annoy the hell outta me until theyre finished, but I get alot of pleasure out of the finished article.
    I want to try & make more of these, but smaller, & Im considering using more exotic woods/inlays, but Ive no idea where to find "exotic timber" in the UK, I gues I should start looking at instrument makers/cabinet makers.

    Loving your work! Very stylish idea mate :roof:

    As for hardwoods, you're right about looking for instrument making supplies etc or there may be a specialist timber supplier in your area. I would recommend picking it out by hand instead of buying online as you need to see the grain and check for faults such as knots and shakes for yourself. It's not cheap either, and much harder to work with (as you may already know), also make sure you wear a mask as many hardwoods have dust which is carcinogenic.

    If you're Manchester based, these guys might be of use: http://www.iitimber.com/

    Good luck with your projects :)

    Thanks for the tip. I'll check them out.

    (Just took a quick look. Blimey! Portwood Timber is about 2 miles away from me & I pass it everyday coming home from work, & Hyde is just down the road from me. Great find, there! Thanks alot.)

    Good work! Instead of hooks, I would have used lots of neodymium magnets, but that's just me... I like magnets! :D

    Nice job Stu and the paint work looks pretty good , you can see the perspex on the shelves reflected in the door.Piano hinges are a pain to fit sometimes but do a better job than two cabinet hinges would. O0
