This is a display cabinet I started last spring before my knee and bursa started giving me trouble (finally got my mojo back) ;0) ... It’s for a good client who has inherited some of her dad’s duck decoys he carved (Bruce Burke). She may also have a handmade working, model steam engine he also built stored in it.
The dimensions are 38 1/2” tall x 15 1/2” deep x 27” wide at the top. The case is 24×24 with 3/4” sides. It’s all red oak. The top is pegged to the sides. I laminated the legs, cut a taper, routed the edges and attached them with pocket screws and glue. The door is also joined with pocket screws at the mitered corners. All the pocket holes have been plugged so they are nearly invisible.
The back is 3/16” mirror with a 1/4” ply backing. The shelf is 3/8” tempered glass while the door glass is 1/8” annealed glass.
The finish is minwax natural and minwax semi-gloss varithane.
Thanks for looking.
