This is a cabinet I built for the kitchen to hold more of he kids stuff.
It’s solid cherry, no ply wood, no secondary woods. Nominally 3/4” stock, laminated boards to get the sides, top, and shelf. Ship lapped cherry back (not sure you can see it through all the junk). One drawer with hand cut dovetails (I know they look spaced like machine cut, but I wasn’t trying to be too experimental). Raised panel door with haunched mortises and tenons. Mortises and tenons on the face frame. One shelf inside. Horton brasses hardware.
Finished with shellac; I went a little crazy putting on coats of shellac since it would see some abuse. Even with blonde shellac I ended up adding enough coats that it imparted a brown tone to the case. Not exactly what I was aiming for, but not a problem. I’ll see over time if it looks more red, or stays with a brown tint.
Forgot to add; the case is 34” tall, 28” wide, and 16” deep, the top is 31”x18”
