Built this cabinet with a plan from Woodsmith magazine. All cherry with some vintage style pulls from Through mortise and tenon with pegged tenons throughout. All functional.

A great project (expensive glass).

Thanks guys. The plan was originally published in WoodSmith and is now available at Plans now:

I went with hardware for the door pulls instead of the wooden ones in the plan. I liked the look much better. Also went with a glass shelf as the upper shelf so that the light would carry through. If you are looking for a great cabinet to build, I would consider this one.

There was a jig that needed to be built as well. The lower through mortise was so long, the jib really helped with the work on that. Kept the tolerances real tight.

Spectacular! I like how you chose an assymmetric grain pattern. Although I love all the bookmatched stuff, the assymmetry gives a lot of visual interest, in my opinion. Nice work!
