I first saw this design on ljs the gentlemans user name is skeys. This project was a real skillbuilder. I used hand tools exclusively for all of the jointery and almost all of the milling. It was perfect timing to break in my new jointer plane. I even opted to go the handplane route to make the underside chamfer on the top which. One small hurdle to overcome was how to create the groove on the top door stile. I decided to go after it with chisel and router plane. As for the materials the cherry used for this project was very co operative no real issues with stability. Which was a concern with the case panels being 15” in width and the top being around 19”.
As with anything greene and greene the pillowed plugs can try your patience but they look so cool once they are done (: Thanks for having a look

Realy incredible table/cabinet, beautiful design. Those ’’finger’ joints with ‘touch’ of G&G and dovels are great. Me also made one cabinet with this type of joinery. I must admit it’s very sturdy and reliable.

I love it. What was your process with the legs?

Thank you! The leg blanks were 2”×2.75” I made a few templates to chose from. The one i went with had the apex land in the center of the case. The leg curves from both sides. They are 1 3/8” at their narrowest point. The top and bottom few inches were scribed with a compass.

That is a great piece. I really like the figure on the front of the doors. Adds a nice accent to the overall design.

This is a fantastic piece of furniture; all the better for using only hand tools.
