I made this cabinet for my employer Ornamentum Furniture about a year and half ago. The Gables are 1 1/2 thick and span the cabinets height. Showing the end grain at the top was a bold design choice and i made sure to line up all my laminations from top too gables giving it a very linear look. The design is simple and clean letting the wood speak for itself. Grain matched drawer fronts and doors open on Blu-motion self closing Blum slides. The drawers are made from solid Walnut using the offcuts from the case panels. I really enjoyed this build and the creative liscense i was given in its overall look.

Beautiful cabinet. I like the idea of the end grain on the top. I just finished a similar cabinet. The dimensions look alot the same, I love the grain flow through the whole piece. Nice work.

Really nice. It appears that the drawer fronts and doors are cut from one big piece of wood or book matched and cut. Is that correct? When you say gables are you referring to the end panels of the piece? The cabinet is very well designed and executed. Welcome to Lumber Jocks. We’ll be looking for lots more projects.

A great view. i assume that the fronts are veneered. because of the repeating grain.

A nice cabinet. Great job.
