Built in Oak Cabinet

This is a cabinet I built to be a flush to the wall built-in.
It only sticks out past the wall by less than ¼”
Two accent lights add a elegant look to the cabinet.
The basic look & design was crated by the people I built it for.

I used Red Oak plywood with solid Oak edging done with a router bit set.

Solid Oak with Mortise & Tenon joinery.

I will be doing a walnut cabinet or the same people next.

Looks great. Normally I wouldnt bunch the knobs up so close together but it works on this.

maybe on the next one you might bring the lights up close to the front of the cabinet and place a light valance in front of lights therefor giving the cabinet a “Lighted” look without having your eyes drawn to them.

I really like the look of this piece. How did you attach glass in the doors? I can’t tell if there is applied molding or not. Good job.

Nice…

You say the cabinet is proud of the wall by just a quarter inch. How was the drywall/plaster finished to give a tidy look?

Thanks every one.

Roman I like your Idea of bringing the lights up close to the front of the cabinet and place a light valance in front.
I think we did it this way because the shelves were glass but now that you mentioned it I see your point.
The next one will be a face frame style but I will keep this in mind.

Hello seriousturtle

I used a small bead of silicone to hold the glass & stop it from rattling & then applied a small oak retainer strip mitered at the corners & held it in using small brass pins.

awesome project. I love built in projects. Nice design and I really like the lights. I also saw some pocket holes joinery. Great project.

That’s nice. I guess the lower door panels were re-sawed from one piece of wood and then book-matched?
