I made this cabinet for my daughter. She had a very small bedroom at the time, so I designed it to have a small footprint. I was aiming for a contemporary voice with a bit of a shaker accent. Versatile design can be as a bookcase or display cabinet. Add baskets or decorative boxes and store all kinds of treasures! Frame and panel construction in solid cherry with an accent stripe of padauk. Finished in oil and varnish.

How did you build it? Specifically what kind of joinery dos you use? Mortise and tenons? Pocket screws? Domino (if you’re luckier than me?

Great work. Love the shaker style.

Thanks for the compliment m. It’s been a few years since I built this piece (before the Domino came to be). I believe the stiles were joined to the legs with loose tenons. The side and back panels were rabbeted along all 4 edges to fit into grooves that were routed into the legs and stiles. The rabbets were cut deep enough that there was a gap around all 4 sides to allow for seasonal expansion/contraction. I think I used space balls (not the movie) in the grooves.

The bottom/floor was another frame-and-panel assembly (probably over-engineered). I believe it was joined to the sides with pocket screws.

Thanks for your interest!
