This coffee bar was designed to fit into a specific sized space within the client’s kitchen and to loosely match the existing cabinetry. This piece has (2) small drawers, (1) large drawer and (1) set of double doors. ¾” maple plywood was used for the box structure while using ½” maple plywood for the back panel. Face frames were constructed using rough cut maple lumber and milled to ¾”.
Drawer boxes were constructed of rough cut maple and milled to ¾”, joined with box joints, given a ⅛” round over on the edges and finished with 2 coats of semi-gloss polyurethane. Drawer bottoms were built with ½” maple plywood.
Doors and drawer faces were constructed of rough cut maple and milled to 1″ and given a ⅛” round over to smooth the edges.
Inside the top drawer is a removable divider system made from maple milled to ⅜” and has storage for utensils, tea bags or other items. Each section of the dividers was given a ⅛” round over and butt joints sanded to give a smooth edge. The main left and right stiles are maple milled to ¾” to give a sturdy appearance.
Behind the double doors are (3) built-in storage cubes with a ¾” maple top. The top was finished with 3 coats of hard wax oil for ultimate protection against scuffs and scrapes.
The counter top was made of rough cut maple and milled to 1½”. (3) boards were joined using the Festool domino system with Titebond 3 wood glue. The edges were eased with a ⅛” round-over.
