This is a project for my daughter. The door I used is from my wife’s family home. My daughter wanted a piece of grandma’s house for her house. So, I used the transom light window from over the kitchen door of the old house as the door to this cabinet. My daughter requested that I leave the original finish on the door… As “ugly” as it is…
The cabinet is cherry. Mortise and tenon construction. The tenons are pegged through mortise. Very solid.
The challenge was to build a cabinet when the door already existed. I found the plan for this arts and craft style in Fine Woodworking Magazine. A good friend used auto cad to redraw the dimensions so as to fit the existing door.
Dovetails cut with router for front and rear of drawer using wood-line jig. Secondary wood of drawer is poplar.
Cabinet is 44 inches tall by 16 wide and 13 deep.
