This mission style display cabinet is one of my latest projects. I had some walnut lumber laying around for several years. So I decided to utilize it for this particular cabinet. The outside dimensions are 38” W x 72” L X 14’ D. Single glaze glass was used for the side panels and doors whereas 1/4” tempered glass provided the shelving. I made some tong and groove panels for the back and floating panels for the bottom doors.

I used a rub-on polyurethane for the finish and thought it came out very nice. Walnut certainly has it’s beauty.
Thanks for looking.

Your design, or from a plan? Impressive if it is your own design.

Very nice, proportions look great, and well crafted.

I am curious: What is the order in which you glued it together? In a frame and panel design, do you do the sides first, then add bottom/shelves/top, and then the back and doors?

Beautiful! I love the simple yet elegant style. I’ve always liked walnut, but it’s a little pricy for me.
