This was a commissioned piece I built in the Summer of 2011. Pretty standard jelly cupboard, dado and rabbet construction mostly, with mortise and tenon faces. Cupboard door designed to look like two separate pieces, but open as one large door. All pine construction.

There is still something to be said for non-complex construction. I come from a very basic background. I think it’s wonderful.

Beautiful in it’s simplicity. This country style of furniture is what lured me to the hobby, and was the style of my first build too. Great piece.

Truly outstanding in its field (pun intended). Seriously, I love the simple beauty of this style (see my projects). Do you intend to finish it?

Well done! I did an early jelly cupboard as well. I love the simplicity and utility that these pieces offer. Thanks for sharing.
