My wife requested that I build her a place to hang her necklaces and this was the form that came to mind. It’s Krenov inspired, even if it falls short of Krenov execution and is made from white oak and cherry locally grown and harvested. The dimensions are roughly 7”x15”x2”

I learned a good deal during this build, particularly the execution of the bowed front. This was my first use of Brusso hinges, and I found them very satisfactory.

It’s finished with tung oil finish. I usually like to wax over the tung oil finish, but chose to polish the wood to a shine for this project.

Very Good! I see a lot of Krenov inspiration in this, his name for the design is coopered door. i have been meaning to build something similar for a key cabinet. In my projects there is a Krenov design cabinet I built a couple of years ago with a somewhat similar design.

Thank you all for your encouraging responses.

Andre, I found your Krenov cabinet. I like it and enjoyed the name. Did you hang it on the wall? I have not quite figured out how thick a wall mounted project something can be and maintain pleasant proportions.

No Hasn’t made it to a wall yet, I have some brass inserts for the back which will keep it flat to the wall, yours being only 2” deep shouldn’t be a problem.

Andre,

You’re right, the depth on mine isn’t a problem. It is closer to being too shallow.

Your mention of the brass inserts reminded me to mention the balance problem I encountered. The door is a substantial portion of the weight of the whole cabinet and made the cabinet swing on the wall when the door was opened. To stabilize the cabinet, I used two hangers, one each at the top and bottom of the box. I used three screw in the wall to give a triangular set of attachment points; one screw for the top hanger and two for the lower. The hangers are thin oak strips glued and pegged to the back of the box and notched for the screws heads.
