Walnut cabinet I made for our house. Uses pocket door hardware to lift front and partially recess. Mortise and tenon construction. Never made the shelf for the interior but I intend to. finish is oil and wax. No plan, just used a sketch as a guide.

21” tall x 39” wide x 19 1/2” deep

Great looking project JC. It is one handsome chest with great color. I am staring one soon and it will be my first mortise and tenon project.

Very nice cabinet. Walnut is a pleasure to work with. You did a very nice job.

A beautiful, functional piece, especially once you add the shelf. I hope it’s not going to be buried in a mud room!

The base detail of the tapered legs, along with the repeating door panels really makes this work!

Love everything about this piece. Really like the way you chose and symetrically placed the bottom frame piece of the door (under the hande). Almost looks bookmatched.

I like it. Do you have any plans, or a parts list or anything?
