This modern Arts and Crafts style cabinet was designed by Fine Woodworking art director Mike Peckovich and built during a course he taught at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking. Mike’s style is somewhat minimalist, the beauty of the piece coming as a result of the materials and exposed joinery. It’s made of quarter sawn oak with great ray fleck. The door panel is highly figured black walnut. I had never seen figure like this previously. It comes from a branch. The door pull and drawer know are turned ebony. They joinery features dovetails on the case and drawer that are proud of the surface and through tenons. It is very similar in style to a jewelry box I built with Mike last year and is posted in my projects. I was very pleased with the outcome.
Critique appreciated. Cheers,

-- Glen

Great looking cabinet. Must be nice to have an opportunity to take classes with Mike, from his podcasts he sounds like a good guy.
Thanks for posting.
