This cabinet is solid walnut and a nice piece. Measures 30” tall, 20” wide and 7 5/8” deep. The door has 1” mortise and tenons.

Overall, it was a fun piece to make.

The project included: m & t joints, dovetails, and resawing.

Tools used: I used a router, a router plane (used this for the first time and is now high on the favorite list), mortising chisels, table saw, power planer, power jointer (for the rough edges), BU jointer plane (for the finished glued panel edges), shoulder plane, drill press, dovetail saws (rip and crosscut), a #2 plane, #4 plane, a Record #43 (for the door panel), band saw, hand scrapers, an assortment of chisels, measuring and marking tools..

Making a taller one in cherry for the same customer.

Thanks for looking

Beautiful work David. Nice design and execution and some great looking DTs.

Thank you sir. This was a fun piece to design and build. The next one that I am building in cherry may not have the open “niche” at the bottom but will have a crown molding at the top. The customer may, after getting this, change their minds on a few things. Currently making the panels and will make the rest when I know more tomorrow.

Nice work. What’s the finish? It looks a little darker, did you stain it to?

I did use a little medium brown dye before finishing this. Then a coat of tung oil finish, then spar poly (several coats).

The customer wanted an almost ebony color to match existing cabinetry but I also know that she likes the grain – this was the compromise. A little darker, but still see the grain. I also had a couple of places where there was sapwood showing and had to color those spots.
