This is a small cherry wall cabinet that I recently completed. The dentil trim is composed of maple and walnut with the rest of the cabinet in cherry. It’s approximately 25” in height x 12” wide x 5” deep and is designed to attach to the wall with a french cleat.

The finish is Tru Oil. Thanks for looking.

I like Tru Oil on cherry. Does the cabinet have a purpose? Is that a ship lap back, would like to see a close up pic if it is. Very nice cabinet out of my favorite wood.

Thanks for the comments – to answer Neil’s question concerning the back – it’s a lapped joint with a bead cut to dress it up a bit. The bead for the back panels as well as the bead on the top molding was cut with a shop made scratch stock – simple tool that produces a pretty nice bead and is faster than setting up the router table!
