This cabinet took a while to sculpt. The doors are similarly built as my “Diwata” http://lumberjocks.com/projects/74538 while the drawers are carved to flow as one collective piece similar to my “Alupihan” http://lumberjocks.com/projects/78945.
Your comments on my projects are greatly appreciated…. Your comments inspire me….THANK YOU ALL!!
The doors slats are molave and are dowelled through and through with ironwood. The frames are balayong. The handles and frame are one piece. The cabinet frame/legs are tindalo while the drawers are of molave. The crown is also made from balayong while the inlays are amboyna burl. The cabinet stands 7’ and is 42 inches wide. The whole thing weighs around 250 lbs. I am presently working on a smaller version of this and will be posting it by next month.
Have a great weekend guys!
