I just finished this little cherry cabinet and thought I would post it. It started out as straight line project in my head, sort of like a Krenov type cabinet but it evolved into what you see once I started to put it on paper. Don’t ask me how I got from there to hear but I did. The Blue Jay is from a photo from a book & the other bird is a Blue Faced Honey Eater taken from a George Raper drawing c1788. I have this fascination with birds so I’m sure this won’t be the last thing I do with birds on it. This was a learning experience in that I did some of the construction on the fly, I won’t try that again. A good plan set down in advance always works better, not to say that sometimes a change in direction during a process isn’t needed.
