Map Flat Storage

This map cabinet was custom made for Jenni and I's USGS and Green Trails topographic maps.

Carcass (shell)- Birch plywood,
Edge banding and corners- reclaimed White Oak,
Shelves- Masonite/Hardboard (I learned with this project that Masonite doesn't contain any glues or resins and uses only natural steamed and flattened wood chips.)
Finish- Watco Danish oil Golden Oak
Stand- reclaimed White Oak

Right next to it's big brother (left), the gear shelf (made with same materials):
