We inherited an old painted Hoosier Cabinet and I finally figured out a way to make something like a Hoosier Cabinet that was more my style.

It is made with maple boards. The Lock-in – Lock-out counter top is an end grain cherry & maple cutting board

The roll up piece was constructed using two special router bits that allowed the slats to interlace with one another. That means no wire, strings, or canvas.

That is one very interesting cabinet I don’t think I’ve ever seen one with a sliding table top before.

Rick, htl, Kelster58 : Thanks.

htl;
All of the Hoosier Cabinets I have seen have a sliding table. Usually it is metal and the steel frame that contains the sliding table also holds up the top cabinet. I wanted to avoid all of that metal. In fact I didn’t want any metal. So, I extended the rear stiles on the base cabinet, used maple boards for top & bottom cross pieces and hung the top cabinet on the cross pieces. The sliding counter top is connected to the lock-in – lock-out drawer slides in the base cabinet top.
