This cabinet is made from white oak. The shelf inside is Chinquapin and maple. The finish is Danish oil, shellac, and wax. It was designed as a wall cabinet but would be equally effective as a sideboard. The design is simple and straightforward, inspired by the work of Alan Peters. The main design element is how the stiles meet the rails, and the “Chinese mitres” on the side panels. The last picture shows how the stiles meet the rails. It was taken before the finish was applied and before the doors were hung.
I call it “Alan Peters inspired” because of his use of flat areas, straight lines, and subtle design elements. I feel like it was successful.
It measures 7’ wide by 33” tall by 14” deep. The shelf is adjustable 2” up or down.
