I like the recessed pulls. I’m guessing you made those with a router bit and a template? Maybe a dovetail bit to give you a lip to grab?

Wow- classy cabinet!
Like the pulls as well. The cabinet have a great MCM feel that i apprecaite. Is it your own design?
Is that your living room? Like the walls. Is that a [laftehus] house made from whole beams?

Its an old log-house (built in 1892 and moved by us to the current location in 1993) this is the only room where we have the logs visible. The cabinet is of my own design as I wanted a strict minimalistic style and we couldnt find anything that we liked at The great blue swede.
Would you mind telling me what you mean by “MCM-feel”?

MCM = Mid Century Modern
Like for instance this classic Rud Rasmussen from the 50-60ies:
That time is scoming back. And yes – even IKEA is getting there:

Hope to see more of your fine craftsmanship in the future!
