Well, at least that was my intention. I have always admired a Krenov cabinet, so I thought I’d pay homage to the master craftsman. The drawers are maple with bubinga fronts. The cabinet is cherry as are the drawer pulls, while the dovetailed cornerposts and stand are made from bloodwood.

Your piece certainly is unique and looks like an example of fine craftsmanship. Is it build to stand on a table? It is beautiful.

Great looking table. I want to make a Krenov style table also.

Thanks for mentioning Krenov link:

I love cabinets, yours is perfect. Since your the crafter of that fine piece can I ask, is it perfect?

I’m also working on a cabnet, cant wait to share it.
