This is a gun cleaning cabinet, based on the secretary desk concept with apothecary/Chinese design elements. Built from a single Black Cherry tree harvested Nov. 2010 from southern Iowa. Accent grilles are made from Wenge with flame-treated copper sheeting.
The desk top is supported by a pull-out (seen closed in 1st pic and open in 2nd) to avoid the obstruction of normal types. Drawers are all green-felt lined.
An ammo collection display case will eventually be fitted into the back of the main compartment. And a chair is currently being designed to complete the set. I will add a pic of the chair in a couple weeks.
Joinery includes: blind dowel, pocket screw, biscuits, box jointed drawers, stile & rail, inletted knife hinges. Hounds tooth was made with a box joint jig, painted black and re-planed to create the deep shadow effect.
Notice the latches on the sides; the base is a seperate piece so the chest can be set on a table if needed.
