This is a shaker style cabinet I made recently.I was given some pieces of quilted mahogany by LJ Gshephed, and when I received them,I knew they just had to become panels.
All the walnut came from 1 board, which was given to me a few years ago.
The carcase dovetails were cut by hand along with the M&T joinery for the face frame and door.I used a chisel for the mortising and back saw during which was given to me by LJ chrisstef.
Finish on the walnut is a couple coats of med walnut danish oil sanded in with 320 and 400,followed by some garnet,orange,and blonde shellac.On the mahog it was ruby,orange and blonde.
The hinges and handle were also given to me by chrisstef and I decided on brass screws for a little contrast.
Dimensions are 24t x 14w x 8d and its adjustible shelves will hold my coffee stash.
I am really pleased with how this piece turned out.Thanks Shep and Steff I hope I did ya proud.
