I am so excited to share with you guys my newest project- this craftsman style buffet cabinet. I am in love with this buffet cabinet I just designed and built.
We needed extra storage for things like tablecloths, dishes, and even crayons and coloring books- haha! So I wanted something that was totally enclosed. I knew I wanted drawers, because- crayons! But I also knew I wanted shelves where we could store larger things too.
I absolutely LOVE the way this piece of furniture turned out! I love the shape and style of it, and I love the natural look of the dark stained wood. I was really torn on whether I wanted to paint it or stain it, because if you have seen any of the furniture I’ve designed and built- like my coffee table, desk, farmhouse bench– you know I love the white painted wood with a solid dark stained top. But I really loved how my jewelry cabinet looked all stained, and so I went with the all stained look.
This is a pretty advanced build, it cost about $250 for the lumber and supplies, and it took about 15 hours in the shop to build. But it is a SOLID, stong piece of furniture, made of 100% real wood- no composites. It’s definitely a piece that we will love and cherish forever.
Of course I drew up some building plans for this buffet cabinet. Iâ€™m excited to share the full how-to, including the plans over at BuildSomething.com, which is Kregâ€™s new building plan site (you know, the Kreg Jig people).

I agree, there is nothing wrong with this piece. How do I get the plans?
beautiful, great job
Yikes. The drawers and doors need some work – try overlay drawers for your skill level. They’re much easier to tackle than inset.
