My sister came to visit this spring and while she was here I asked her if she’d like me to make something for her. Since she visited on an airplane I thought I’d make something smaller and we decided on a shaker cabinet that was in a woodworking magazine. It was made out of cherry but I decided to make hers out of Walnut. While I was doing some French Polishing practice. I glued up some veneer panels to practice on. The one for the door was one of my practice pieces.
The door is Clairo Walnut on the front and Waterfall Bubinga on the back. The back of the cabinet has Sapel Pomella Veener on it. The original cabinet plan had drawers in the lower cabinet. But she was planning to put it between her twin mirrors in her bedroom and didn’t desire the drawers. So I left a shelf for her to place nicknacks. The upper shelves are adjustable.
Sorry about the picture, with the glare.
