A variation reproduction of a China Display Cabinet in Pennsylvania Cherry.
My Grandma Cleta gave the original cabinet to my mother right after her wedding, and it was passed down through the family to me.
Unfortunately, it didn’t survive the move down to Florida.
So I made a promise to make a reproduction that Grandma would be proud of as soon as my abilities allowed.
This is the result. It took a long time to build and was very challenging.
Features include dovetailed case joinery, hand cut transition molding, fluted front, bracket feet, raised panel doors, and Sapele shelving, with interior lighting.
It is about 66” in height and 18” deep. The finish is cherry danish oil and polyurethane, with a wax top coat.
The upper molding profile was traced from the original, and the lower door pulls are from the original too.
I have hundreds of process photos, but my photo program is acting up. If I can get it to behave, I’ll add them.
I think Grandma Cleta would have liked this build.
(The last photo is of my dear Grandma Cleta.)
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
