Custom Liquor Cabinet (Pt 4)

It's finally finished!!




The hinges came in late from the supplier, and made an excellent contrast to the wood.  The screws that came with the hinges were too long, so I had to go for some 1/2" zinc plated screws.

The hinges had a nice patina on it, and the screws did not, so there would have been a very stark contrast.

I made up a simple solution to accelerate the rusting of the screws with:

  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • White Vinegar
  • Salt
I placed the screws in the bath and let them sit, agitating them for a few minutes, until the metal looked more or less partially rusted.

The hinges were placed roughly 1/3 of the way from the top and bottom.  With the lock and hasp about 20" down from the top.

Enjoy!
