This is designed so that it can be free standing or wall hung. It is my first successful attempt with homemade wooden hinges. Woods are walnut, pine, oak for the door, maple & cataba. Finish is 2 coats (so far) of oil mixture. Height is approximatels 30 inches.

Thanks for the nice comments. I am rathed pleased with the way the hinges work & look. I also liked the look of the unstained pieces of wood that make up the whole thing. It did take me awhile to get the hinges right. Trial & error are excellent teachers. BTW, the bright spot on the lower right is a reflection of the sun off a shiny object that was on the left. I did not notice it till I did the posting.

Nice work. I especially love wooden hinges and pulls. Brass and steel seem to make me a little dyslexic.
