This one also started with cherry (go figure!). I found the top already assembled in the liquidation section of my favorite supplier. I cut and screwed a small part to make a backsplash/pencil roll then went down with walnut for the legs, the upper and lower rails, on all sides. They are assembled with interlocking through tenons for the top and regular tenons in the bottom. The side and back panels are made of maple veneered particleboard and are assembled to the legs and rails with biscuits. The doors’ rails and stiles are staircases nosing rejects (!!!) of beautiful bird’s eye maple. They were rabbeted to accept a glass panel that I acid etched. I used translucent adhesive plastic in roll to protect the section with the drawing from the acid thus leaving it clear. Heraldry is just another of my hobbies and the arms depicted there represent both my wife’s heritage (the British Lion Rampant) and mine, the French Fleur-de-Lys. 3 adjustable shelves complete the cabinet. Finish is 3 coats of oil-varnish everywhere. Unfortunately, one of the glass panes was hit and cracked. I just need to find the time to make another…
