This is a small project I made a while ago and I have wanted to post it for sometime (among others yet to be posted)
It is a “Mini Sideboard” that my wife needed next to our bed, to put stuff on or in. The Corpus is made out of European Cherry wood and the sliding doors are made out of American Walnut with paper panels in the middle to save weight and space.
The Dovetails are hand cut, and the paper panels are removeable or replaceable should they break.
It is hung up using a mortised in hardware requiring just two screws in the wall.
I Must say it is one of the most usefull thing that I have made yet for our home.
PS… the last picture is of a small piece of American Chery held up to the European cherry on the right. This is just for the Curious who would like to see the difference. The Ami. Cherry has more of a pinkish tone to it before its exposed to light (freshly sanded) and the Euro. Cherry is more Reddish brown which mellows out to a warm red with time and UV exposure, where the Ami Cherry becomes a beautiful reddish brown with time. The Euro Cherry is finer grained the American Cherry as well, and I think they are about the same hardness.
