Early American Hanging Wall Cupboard

Here is my first Hanging Wall Cupboard. A really fun project. Made out of solid Butternut. The face frame is blind mortise and tenon, draw-bored. And the doors are through mortise and tenon, draw-bored. The one thing that I would change about it is how I spaced the pegs. They need to be spread out just a little more. That’s what I get for pushing on when I’m tired. Other than that, I am really happy with how it turned out. If anyone is interested in some handmade hinges, let me know and I’ll forward you the contact info of the Blacksmith that made them for me. He’s great at the craft and can send you pictures of other work he’s done.

I like this a lot. Looks like something I would make. I like the hinges too. Almost looks like an old Ice box.

Oh yeah. I forgot about the pegs. gary351, the pegs are hand made, I forgot that they are made out of elm. Elm is stronger than butternut.

I like that a lot. The butternut has a great look. What did you use for a finish?

I love the butterfly hinges, square pegs and most of all the book-matching. If you price antique furniture, this style is very pricey. Great work.

Nice proportions on this unit, it very eye appealing. The cherry grain flow beautifully and the hinges add a great touch as well…thanks for posting…BC

ChuckV, the finish is a coat of tung oil and a totally unperiod correct coat of shellac, followed by an unperiod correct coat of Briwax applied with 0000 steelwool.
