This is a nice project that i started at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking and had shipped home to Nebraska for completion. The design and the class was given by Kevin Rodel who does some amazing work and did a great job teaching this class. All done in cherry.

Beautiful work. Looks like features of Green and Green included. Very nice.

That is absolutely beautiful! Now you’re going to have to make matching pieces.

Did you have a lot of work to complete once you got it home?

Kevin considers this a Mackintosh basically because of the grid work and use of squares in design. Believe me I have been wanting to do a Greene and Greene project for a long time and had a hard time fighting off the urge to add some cloud lifts and pillowed ebony plugs. The to styles have so many simalar elements it would have been easy to make this G & G.

I have actually made several pieces of this stlye of furniture for our house already. I picked designs from magaizines and books and just built them because I liked the style. It wasn’t until I was investigating this class and the designer that I realized that although these pieces were from different sources they were all designed and built by Kevin Rodel. At that point I had to take the class.

When I packed the project up I had all but the doors complete and dry fitted ready to glue up. Unfortunately after 4 days with UPS I had to rebuild about 10 of the major components but it served as a good refresher course.

Very awesome! Would love to see the inside and to know if this is the first project of this type for you or if you do things like this on a regular basis.

I can post some pictures of the inside. I will have to get some pictures tonight. It’s very easy to imagine though. It’s just like the outside. All the panels on the back and inside are designed to look just as nice as the outside. The bottom has a real cool idea. It stands about 1/2” proud of the bottom and serves as the door stop. Very clever.

I have built several projects like this but I am not at all a professional.

Sorry to hear about your UPS woes, that’s a bummer.

Might you post any of the other similar pieces you’ve made? If they’re anything close to this, Im guessing I’m not the only one that would like to see them.

For some reason it won’t let me attach photos to this reply. Watch for my name over the next few days and I’ll try to add as many as I can from home under new projects

Wow. This piece I really like. I guess it is kind of Macintosh with the squares, but minus all the flowers etc. I love the squares, and was never that crazy about his flowers and vines.

Again, it is just beautiful. And cherry too. My favorite wood.
Thanks for showing this. I am curious about the squares on the front bottom stretcher.
Post some more if you could.

Very nice cabinet. I was actually at CVSW yesterday and signed up for a class with Mr. Rodel for next summer.

This popped up in roll-the-dice when I was connecting to LJ’s last night on my blackberry.
I had to stop back by and compliment you on a mighty fine looking cabinet.
Beautifully done.
