I built this a while ago but didn’t get around to putting it up here. It is all ash. The shelves are fixed using running dovetails. A note about these – if are going to do them and make them tight, you better have at least a 5 lbs sledge hammer ready. The first I did were a little loose and glued them up without a problem. The third, it is glued and that is where the sledge came to bear. It stopped half way in and stayed there. After a little persuasion, it went in correctly. After that, the glue was was not used (or required) for the rest of the shelves.
I made a piece of molding for the apron or base but my wife didn’t want them on there.
The shuttered doors were made by hand – a chisel – to set the slats.
Thanks for looking.
