I used the design/plans from Woodsmith Vol. 33/No.194 April/May 2011.
I made for some neighbors who were tired of their metal-framed stand. They have a large custom china cabinet made from ash and finished in Brazilian Rosewood. I was asked to replicate wood and finish in this project.
I took them 2 designs, and they chose this one.
The only change I made was to leave off the sliding shelves and put in adjustable height shelves.
I have used Woodsmith plans a few times and have grown used to their approach to the basic cabinet. This saved me a lot of time in this project.
My only mis-giving with this design was using the inset euro hinges. They were expensive and difficult for me to install and adjust.
Since it doesn’t show, I’ll mention pocket hole joinery was used to put the face frame together.
It has been a long time since I worked in ash, and found it very nice to work. Price was comparable to oak in my neck-of-the-woods.
