I admire all of Mike Pekovich’s work so when Fine Woodworking published his small cabinet I started it eagerly. It look me longer than it should have but turned out okay. Made from quarter sawn white oak. This was my first attempt at through mortise and tenon construction.

I like the Pekovich projects as well, very nice designs.

Looks like your version turned out great! Plenty of joinery to keep your fingers nimble 8^)

Where did you find the blurrywood? Does it work well with hand tools?

Very nice! I’d like to see the inside too. Did you just do shelves? I know he sometimes does like half width drawers and whatnot. If like to build a wall cabinet or two – there’s so much you can do with them as far as joinery and design, in a little package. My wife doesn’t think we’d have a wall to hang one on, though… Our rental house is a bit on the small side.

It looks beautiful! I was actually just looking at his article about the small cabinet a few hours ago. I really enjoy his style of woodworking.

Actually, the inside is open. My wife doesn’t have a place for it either… Its going to the shop & I’ll tailor the inside to fit whatever tools I decide to put in there. I’m thinking a combination of drill & router bits at the moment as it’s very shallow.

I built this knowing we didn’t have a spot for it in the house but I like the aesthetic & wanted to try a couple of the joinery techniques he uses. Even if it never gets hung, it will have been worth it to build.
