This was the last project built for The Hand Tool semester 3. The semester was built as a review of all the fundamental skills covered in tidal wave fashion in the first 2 semesters. This project was all about mortise and tenon work with some fun curve balls like long bevels, raised panels, and cope and stick joinery. It was built entirely by hand from Western Red Cedar and finished with General Finishes Federal Blue “Milk Paint”. I had a lot of fun building this

That is a cool looking cabinet, and I bet the simplicity of its appearance belies the complexity of the build. Nice work!

Nice cabinet ! I live in Western Red Cedar country out here in the Pacific NW. I must say I am surprised to see it being used as a cabinet wood. Any particular reason ?

MC, I wanted specifically to use a lightweight wood and a soft one. First it makes the whole cabinet easier to hang but most importantly the soft wood acted as another challenge in sharpening and working by hand. Finally, I have access to lots of it in larger widths and vertical grain at the lumber yard where I work.
