This handmade cabinet was built with a plethora of traditional joinery.
The case and top are bookmatched figured cherry. The case is mitered, the center divider inside the doors was installed via a tapered sliding dovetail. The legs are mortise and tenoned at every joint, and have a slight camber to the outside faces. The doors are also mortise and tenoned, with bookmatched panels and hung with knife hinges. The drawers reveal hand cut dovetails and solid maple bottoms.
The cabinet took 2 solid months to build, and then maybe a week to finish. Sealed with shellac, it’s topcoated with a hand-rubbed polyeurethane, rubbed out with fine steel wool and polished back to a perfect gleam.
