Now this is the little brother to the big Cherry/Walnut Amoire. Notice the reversed color scheme and the vertical shutters. Again, customer’s design and salvaged doors. Tung oil finish. Thanks for looking!

Another interesting design. I like the contrast between the cherry & walnut. The alternating tones of the cherry sapwood provide a lot of visual activity! Interesting choice to put the shutter hardware on the exterior.

Nicely executed technically but a bit busy for my personal taste.

There’s just too much happening with the wood for me.

Also why the louvers?

One of the great mysteries of the world Bob. I guess the client just likes louvers and shutters. :)

Strange that the client would want vertical shutters on one unit and horizontal on the other. I would guess it’s all about how they intend on displaying these cabinets. Maybe they’re just half a bubble off plumb too…take the money and run!

As always, top notch. I only hope to one day have that kind of skill. Thanks for posting the pics.

Nice cabinet Marc. I like the louver doors. Here in Florida, this is standard. It allows air to flow around clothes so the humidity doesn’t mildew them. Goes back to pre air-conditioning days. I haven’t seen many vertical ones though. Interesting.

Great combination of wood, cherry and walnut. I don’t see that very often, it seems like you usually see one or the other.

-- Happy woodworking!

The workmanship is obvious, and well done. I don’t think I would care to have the item in my house though, except as an example of craftsmanship.
