This is the third and final portion of an order for a monastery in Pennsylvania; the other two being the Mission Style Wall Clock, and Note Cabinet.

This is an inter-office mail cabinet; the monk wanted something that would also hide the rather unsightly mail slots and mail, hence the door with “rain” style glass. He ordered some laser-engraved wood name plates for each shelf, which I mounted.

All cherry, with paduak corbels. Finish was 220, sealcoated, one coat of cherry stain, two coats of semi poly, and paste wax. I wanted to give it a tinge of cherry color, but am anticipating the natural cherry color to come in, so I didn’t want it to be too dark.

About 3’ tall.

-- Have a blessed day!

Now there is a monastery that knows how to decorate.
Well done my friend.

Very well done ! Nice style and the rain glass really tops it off : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Great design and build on that fantastic mail cabinet. Like the metal handle and the glass door.

Have your say...
