Do you appreciate sharing a great cigar and/or a glass of fine liquor with family and close friends? If so, I hope you’ll get excited as I am for these two new woodworking plan projects!
I’m currently designing woodworking plans for a tabletop cigar humidor case and a companion liquor cabinet. The cigar humidor will have a capacity of between 75-100 fine cigars and will specify Spanish Cedar lining and a lift out, divided compartment, are more! The companion liquor cabinet will feature a 360-degree revolving front panel and concealed turntable large enough to accommodate multiple bottles of your favorite liquors, as well as other items such as glasses.
Both woodworking plans will help you create the perfect gift for anyone who is a cigar or liquor enthusiast. The plan designs allow recreational woodworkers to easily complete them within a week or two.
So if you love building special projects from great Klockit plans, you will want to order these new plans as soon as they are available! Be watching for the preview of the prototype photo models later in 2014!

John spent the better part of the 28 years he was employed by Klockit, designing hundreds of clock and furniture kits and plans and has continued with product design since his retirement in 2008. John’s love of clocks, his passion for creating furniture for his own home as well as for family, and his great appreciation for the beautiful finished pieces Klockit customers make from our kits and plans inspire him to continue to create still more new clock and furniture designs.
Patience, time and love go into handmade quilts and knitted blankets. Our team believes they should be proudly displayed when not in use, so we created a versatile display cabinet woodworking plan to help guide you to build a new home for your treasure(s).
The top of the finished display cabinet pulls opens via a lid support arm. Once open, you have access to vertically lay quilts or blankets on the 3 included pegs. If you don’t want to display your items vertically, you can incorporate 3 shelves on which you can display your folded quilts/blankets or your favorite kick-knacks. The glass panels on the front and sides allow multiple views of your displayed treasures.
The woodworking plan is detailed yet easy to follow via dimensional drawings for each wood piece and step-by-step instructions. The hardware package for this woodworking plan is sold separately and includes all necessary hardware including the continuous hinge, magnetic door catch, surface mount lock and key and lid support arm.
The finished size of the Display Cabinet is 43 ½”H x 23”W x 15”D – so it’s not too big, but not too small either. I think it would be a great addition to my living room!

The glass and lock escutcheon plate still need to be mounted, but we thought we’d share some sneak peek photos of the assembled curio cabinet that’s ready for final pre-finish sanding.
This curio cabinet is multifunctional in that it can be used without shelf boards for draped quilt display (top opens and quilts are draped over rods that bridge the inside width of the cabinet and quilts hang down and viewed through the front door glass). OR… adjustable wood shelves can be placed in the cabinet so folded quilts can be displayed on the shelves and/or the shelves can hold books, framed pictures, and assorted memorabilia.
Here are some specifics on the cabinet:
– The overall dimensions are 45″ high x 23″ width x 15″ depth
– The front glass framed door has a locking feature, as does the cabinet side.
– The model is made of Red Oak and will be finished in medium oak with a satin finish.
This quilt display/curio cabinet plan is on schedule to be introduced to the Klockit line in September.

The photography model has been finished for the new Blanket Chest that Klockit will be introducing as a plan product later in 2013. The chest design favors the Arts & Crafts styling, and is very compatible with other furniture plans in Klockit’s Prairie Series.
