I’m finally getting back in the shop after a long hiatus. This is one of the first things that I’ve finished up recently: A tea cabinet for my brother-in-law and his wife as a wedding gift.

The case is cherry, joined by hand cut dovetails, left just a hair proud. The shelves are white oak, and the drawer is cherry with maple sides….half blind dovetails there.

The back of the piece is a 3 piece ship lap of basswood, which I like with cherry.

This was my first time joining a case by dovetails, and I’m happy with how it turned out for the most part. I’m new at the half-blinds too. They could’ve been tighter for sure, but it worked out ok in the end.

The piece was hand planed with my old Millers Falls $25 restore from eBay…what a nice tool for the money that’s turned out to be!

The piece is approx 20” tall, 4.75 deep, and 9.75 in width…just meant for a couple of small cups and a teapot for 2.

Anyhow, thanks for looking. Critique is welcome!
