Blueprints for flammable cabinet?


I am looking to make my self a flammable cabinet. Does anyone have any guidelines? I have tried OSHA and NFPA but I can't find a good page. Does anyone also have a good webpage/video providing a step by step tutorial? Thanks!
(I am planning to make it out of wood and fire resistant paint.)
