This is my own EC. I made this after being inspired by the last photo. It may show my effort at scaling the drawing before I started the work. The interior is now painted and drawers clear coated but pictures of that really don’t show anything.
The door mullions are removable. I took one of them to a local stainglass dealer and went through a lot of glass before picking out the right one. I have pic’s of the final 5 that I took home and blew up, cut out and stuck the paper pic’s in the door openings to work through the decision process.
The interior depth is 24”, but when shut the cabinet only reveals a depth of 12”. I wanted this to look like a found piece. The drawers house an ungodly amount of cd’s,dvd’s and tapes.
The cabinet was to be all chechen but the supplier failed to get more as promised. When I finished the cabinet I ran out of chechen and needed more to finish the doors. After waiting a year for my supplier to come through I decided to use Makore’ for the styles and rails. I took my precious remaing two boards of chechen and resawed them into 1/4” thick slabs, edge gluing thus creating the recessed panels. I dared not to plane the recessed panels and so I just sanded them smooth, leaving any edge irregularities. This actually looked better than I’d hoped. Even the surface checks and cracks help make the piece look better.
Another note: the interior is MDF, the drawer glides heavy duty full extension and the door hinges are 2 1/2” butts. The chechen cabinet is attached to the MDF by way of washer headed screws through slots to allow the cabinet sides to move due to seasonal changes and the fact that the sides are full unglued up planks.
