I like the joinery work and the little dimond inlay in the corners of the door cool.

Nice cabinet!
How did you attach the nailers/hanging strips to the box? Staples/brad nails?

Thank you all for you kind comments.

The cabinet hangs on the wall using French cleats, essentially a cleat with a 45 degree angle cut on the edge attached to the wall with anchors and screws, and a mating cleat glued to the top on the inside of the cabinet. One thing I did that is different is attach the back panel directly to the cleat from behind with screws and mounted that assembly to the wall. So the back is not attached to the cabinet in any way. When the cabinet is slide over the cleat mounted on the wall the back slides into a rabbet in the back edge of the sides and bottom of the cabinet. This give me the maximum inside dimension and a very sturdy attachment to the wall.

Simply wonderful, Ron. The detail makes it a timeless piece.
