Sheet Music Storage Cabinet | DIY Build

My Mom asked me to build a sheet music cabinet for my dad as an anniversary gift. I had no idea what a sheet music cabinet was, so I did some digging on the internet and came up with my own design that would match my dad’s upright Steinway piano. I super proud of this build and I hope you enjoy watching it come together. Let me know if you have any questions about it!

That cabinet looks like it’s been in that space forever. Well done matching with the piano and the space.

That’s 12 minutes I’ll never get back…. and I loved every single minute of it. Great job on the build and video. Tell that dude in your video that helped you install the drawers that he has pasty legs just like you. Haha jk.

    Key Woodworks - August 2, 2020

    you had me worried at first haha! My clone’s legs are just as white as mine because that was the first time we’ve worn shorts all year! haha!

Amazing build Nick! Fits perfectly next to the piano. Awesome job bubba!

    Key Woodworks - August 2, 2020

    Thanks, Andy! I appreciate it.

So, I just got done watching your entire video, and I got to the end I caught myself saying “well done Nick” clearly I loved it, or at least my senses did, I love your new format, your editing skills are off the charts, and by the way, the piece lookes great even despite the excessive use of pocket hole joinery, LOL. I like the consistent use of clothing, you must have a lot of the same Tshirts, LOL. ( I did the same thing in my last video)
Look forward to your next project, great job.

    I’m glad you enjoyed it! Haha I wore the same clothes so you wouldn’t know how many different days it took to build it, plus I’m a BAD Workwear ambassador!

    Key Woodworks - August 2, 2020

    Thanks Steve! General Finishes makes all the good stuff!

Angie Williams - August 2, 2020

This is a great build. I am obsessed with apothecary cabinets right now. So when I saw the pic on Instagram… that’s all I could see. It might be a sheet music cabinet… and I have no need for one… but I LOVE IT! This looks amazing. Still not sure how I have never been on your YouTube channel before. I’m subscribed now. So I look forward to seeing more.

Killer edit bro!! That cabinet would be perfect for storing all the sonnets and limericks that I write!!

    Key Woodworks - August 3, 2020

    You’re gonna need one at least two times larger just for your sonnets but thanks man!

    Keith Johnson Custom Woodworking - August 3, 2020

    Key Woodworks You’re probably right….I can be quite the loquacious laureate in my free time.

AGduzit - August 3, 2020

The cabinet and piano looked like they were meant to be together. Classic build; awesome edit. And I want a Ronin.

    Key Woodworks - August 5, 2020

    Thanks man! The ronin is legit.

Michael Heredia - August 3, 2020

New to the channel and of course I subscribed ! Well done.
On a personal note, I am not sure I like the plywood for the drawers on such a classy furniture. Don’t know 😉

    Key Woodworks - August 12, 2020
