This is a wall display shelve/cabinet made last spring. I saw this piece in an issue of Fine Woodworking about two years ago. It measures 24”h x 12”w x 5-1/2”d, and is made from Cherry for the carcass, with Cherry ship-lapped backing, and Afrormosia drawer fronts. The carcass has mitered sides, top and bottom with Afrormosia splines in the corners, to add a little detail and help secure the miter joint. The knobs are antique oiled bronze. The drawers just ride on their side which stand proud of the front by a fraction of an inch and are basically a friction fit, no rails or slides. The drawers are small but look cute and are functional; they’ve become a holding spot for extra keys, small note pads, pencils, etc. There are drawer stops provided so that the drawers don’t end up on the floor, but the stops can be turned, and the drawers remove should you need to clean them out. The drawers also hid the wall attachment screws. The molding under the top is removable and hides the other two wall screws, located in pre-drill screw holes. The molding was drilled out and two very small magnets glued in, these magnets hold the molding against the wall screws and hide them from view. We’ve received some nice comments from family and friends; I’ve found that visitors just love to play with the drawers. I’ve made a few of these since the original, with different designs and lumber combos, I’ll post them shortly. They make great gifts, but start early.
