My dad is a HUGE Dylan fan. Like huge. So, I made him a cd cabinet with wood inlay. This was a huge undertaking for me because I had never used much hardware like hinges and things, so this was my first attempt.

Your dad must've been really surprised. I don't know if you can get this spray-on product in your local home improvement store, but it's about $7 a can and it's called "Cabinet Magic" it would REALLY make those different coloured wood's natural colours pop. It looks like you have used some burnt oak (?) and when it dries out, it cracks if there's not a "moisturizer". You did an awesome job!

This radical cabinet made me jump a string bean.


I hope he was brought to tears when he saw this. I nearly was!
