Creating a Rainbow Cabinet: A Journey of Color and Design

TLDRWatch as I take you through the process of creating a stunning rainbow cabinet using a variety of colorful woods. From design to construction, you'll see the steps involved in this unique project.

Key insights

Using strips of colorful wood, I created a stunning rainbow effect that adds a pop of color to any space.

I used a variety of hardwoods, including maple, beech, cypress, eucalyptus, teak, walnut, padauk, and wenge, to achieve the vibrant colors in the cabinet.

To create the curved sections of the cabinet, I used a bending form and vacuum bag method, ensuring a perfect fit and smooth finish.

Solid mahogany is used to trim the edges of the plywood, adding a touch of elegance and durability to the cabinet.

The final result is a unique and eye-catching rainbow cabinet that is sure to be a conversation starter in any room.
