I made this cabinet as a gift for my Nephew and his wife. They got married last summer, but I was on travel for almost all of last year and I am redoing some bathrooms at the same time. I made something that is not to big as they live in a small apartment in Brooklyn. These are my first hand done dovetails, first knife hinges and first bread board top. It is all cherry.

This is a really nice cabinet. You did a great job on the dovetails and the breadboard ends.

I’m doing my first knife hinges for a project right now, a bit of a challenge, but the first is the hardest.
Your use of the wood tones really adds a touch of class, well done!

Thanks for all of the nice comments.

As for the knife hinges it was quite the journey. I got he hinges at the local Rockler store. They are not inexpensive. I was going to make a jig to route for the hinges but I found one available from the hinge manufacturer (Brusso) also not inexpensive. I found that I needed a different set of bushing guides so I got them from Amazon. The one I needed was to long, so I turned them to the need length on my machine lathe. It worked great but will get the clear base for the next time so I can see what I am doing next time.

As has been said, beautiful! Nice lines and detail. The black handle hardware really sets it off too. Nice work.

Came out really nice. Is that based on Scott Gibson’s design?
