Here’s a couple of cabinets with barley twist front legs. They are 40” wide x 20” deep x 36” tall. The door panels have 1/2” raised diamond panels. Each with one drawer mounted on blumotion softclose undermount slides. They are built out of alder and die stained and glazed with a top coat of laquer.

Thanks for looking!

That is a beautiful piece. I have no clue how you did those curly legs or those awesome diamond panels but they are exceptionally cool.

They look awesome, but how much would you sell a cabinet like that for with all the magnificent detail?

That’s an amazing transformation once the stain goes on. Another quality piece. You’re giving that Killinger Ornamental Mill a good workout.

Wow! The barley twists steal the show, but the raised diamond features would be impressive on their own!
