This is my first Non-shop cabinet
It is all glue construction with exception of pocket screws holding face frame together
The curve is based on greene and greene pieces I have seen
I was planning to put in square plugs of walnut but Once together It looked to good to risk a mistake while cutting a square hole
I made the pulls out of bloodwood
The body of the cabinet is Red oak ply from the borg
The face frame is solid oak and so are the doors
Maybe next time I will raise the panel but this time i just kept it flat
I almost put it together with oak ply door panels
but thank god I took a saturday trip to willard brothers (a fantastic local lumber distributer, they carry almost everything)
The master cabinet maker that works thier suggested that I go with walnut
I looked in the 3/4 section of thier walnut and found this great piece with curl less then 25$
it looks so much better then the ply panels I had in thier originally
I will have to find a use for them
Finish is just 5 coats of wiping poly with 320 sand betweem
I may rub out the finish it is only 2 days cured right now
The wife says its good enough to go inside, The ultimate compliment

Great looking cabinet and I really like the color combo and the style of the panels!

Gorgeous. And your first one. Can’t beat that joinery. I love the contrasting woods. Very nice.

I do feel the pressure to make more
It was just meant to be a suplemental cabinet for the dining area of our kitchen
It does out class the primary cabinets in the kitchen
But to make 16 more with drawers and corner cabinets
I think I wait a while before taking on a full kitchen
Thanks so much for the compliments

Beautiful wood and work! Would gluing the pieces together cause any problems with movement due to humidity?
