We report on the design and fabrication of an 805 MHz RF cavity with beryllium (Be) windows for a muon cooling experiment. The cavity resembles closely to a cylindrical pillbox cavity with the conventional beam iris covered by thin Be foils to enhance on-axis accelerating fields. The Be windows are bolted to the cavity body to allow for easy replacement and testing for different window. The cavity is to be installed within a super-conducting solenoid with magnetic field up to 5 Tesla, and tested as high RF power.
