Nice looking Krenov style cabinet. Are the doors laminated or band sawn?

Elegant! The next piece I hope to make is a curved front piece. I, too, would be interested in construction details, is it better to laminate the curve or band saw it? Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the nice comments.

In this piece I bandsawed the curves on the doors, since the curve was very shallow. In some of my other work that has more severe curves I have to do bent laminations.
