This is my third of four G&G pieces that are grouped together. Based loosely on the Bush Curio Cabinet, I changed the sides to match the G&G bookcase below it along with adding box joint drawers in the cabinet and inside the base that the cabinet rests on. Don’t forget to check out the 3 secret drawers. I was hesitant to use box joints especially on drawers as small as 2 1/4×2 7/8 but I think it came off OK. The top is a much larger version that is similar to the one on the clock that is on the opposing wall. Still not sure if I might alter the top but for now I will see if it grows on me. This was my first effort doing leaded glass and will find something else to make to do it again.

Hallmark, I want to meet you and shake your hand. That cabinet is beautiful. You do awesome work. The level of detailing is just phenomenal, way beyond anything I could ever dream of achieving in my projects. I too am taken with arts and crafts furniture and even try to make some now and then but that thing just makes me want to lay down my tools and just give up, knowing I could never achieve that level of craftsmanship. Just kidding. But seriously. You can be as proud as you want to be over that work of art. Congrats and great job and thank you very much for posting pics. I for one have enjoyed seeing it tremendously.

I’m no expert, but I know a project that takes a lot of detail work, and patience when I see one.
Your eye for detail is what makes this piece stand out.
Very nice indeed!

This is a really bold Greene and Greene statement – It’s like G&G on steriods! I’m not sure why, but I love it! Really tasteful integration of the leaded glass, too. Did you have any trouble cutting the glass with the inside corners? How do you do that?

MattinCincy, I made a form the size of the inside of the door and MDF template pieces that I used to bend the lead came and also used to trace over the glass to be shaped to fit. This photo includes the template pieces that fit into the came.
