Not sure when this was completed. I usually sign and date my projects and I couldn’t find my signature. I probably completed this project between 2000-2004.
The top is dovetailed to the sides with a Leigh dovetail jig. The shelves are fastened to the sides with the Leigh multiple mortise and tenon jig. I added stiffeners to the front of the shelves since this used to hold my theological and woodworking library.
The profile of the top molding is cut by running across the table saw at an angle and raising the blade up 1/16” each pass until final depth is reached. A bead was added with the router for more visual detail.
The back is made from a sheet of cherry plywood. I experimented with a frame and panel back on my china hutch and was quite pleased with that look. It’s more wood and work, but has a very classy look. That would have been a good upgrade on this project.
