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.

Very nice work. I would love to see more pictures of different angles, joinery details, etc. The floating top is excellent… I like the effect of the thin profiled edges. I’m doing my first large set of hand-cut dovetail drawers on my current project, so I appreciate the effort involved.

Beautiful work.
Your style reminds me of Tom Fidgen’s hand made furniture (www.theunpluggedwoodshop.com), look at his hunter’s sideboard for example. I like the details you put in there to make it look light and airy. The bottom legs reminiscent of japanese unfluence mixed with arts and crafts. Again, really unique and beautiful.

Really a stunningly beautiful piece. It appeals to my aesthetic of being very quiet and understated. Yet when you look the piece over carefully, you can see to many wonderful details, such as the careful grain matching, attention to color, and the wonderful drawer and door pulls. I hope to have the skills to “borrow” the design some day.

This absolutely beautiful work. I’d love to see more pics of how it all works. Is it all cherry? How did you get the contrast between the panels and the rest of the piece?

That’s one stunning piece of work. I too would love to see some close ups of the joinery.

And this: “Sealed with shellac, it’s topcoated with a hand-rubbed polyeurethane, rubbed out with fine steel wool and polished back to a perfect gleam.” Makes me wish I could see it in person.

Simple at first glance, complex on inspection. Quiet details that reward investigation. Beautiful piece.

Really nice work. I pursued your website as well – I certainly think you are earning the title, “craftsman.”
