I made two small Shaker-style cabinets from Christian Becksvoort’s article in FWW #252. To give a bit more storage, I increased the depth by an inch from the original plans. I also made two pegs and a board to hang the cabinets.

The case is joined with half-blind dovetails that are later hidden by the overhanging top and bottom:

We live in an old house. These cabinets are in a wacky area off the kitchen that used to be the connection between the house and the barn. Nothing here is level or plumb. The peg board is level and you can tell how out of level the ceiling is in the first photo above.

I really like the little spinners that hold the doors closed. These photos show one in the open and closed positions from the inside of the door:

Everything is made from cherry and finished with Danish Oil.

A few months ago I made another peg board for storage in the same room:

Nice workmanship, I too like those latches with a stop that works for both positions.
