Well here goes for the third time if it dosen’t croak again.

This is a small display cabinet for the wife. It has a recessed back in order to help cover the telephone transformer. It has two bookmatched veneered drawers for the telephone books and so on.

The upper side panel has figured panels inserted that again are matched left and right.

The tombstone sides are matched by doors of the same construction.

The basic cabinet—

The Bracket feet, notice the expansion area in the bottom, prevents a destruction if it get real humid —

Drawer guides and dust panels—

Doors ready to fit—

Figured side panel—

Well that’s all for now. (Man, 24 pieces of glass on the outside-Whew!)

More later.

This is going to be a nice looking piece.

That grain is going to “pop” with the finish on it.

Nice Charles. Keep blogging it. I want to see the completed piece. Is the bottom a board or ply? I would also be interested in how the dust panels are attached to the case.

ChicoWoodnut,

The dust panel is held into the frame by a 1/4” grove like in a door frame.

The bottom is solid walnut thus the need for an expansion capability.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Outstanding Charles! Is this your own design?

Chris,

Yes, it is my own design. I almost always design my own stuff using the “Form follows Function” rule.
And as much as I can I use features of other designs as my inspiration.

Thanks!

Thanks Charles, I used the same technique for the dust panels on my current project.
