Simple wall cabinet made from maple cherry and pine scraps I had in the shop. Painted with old time milk paint then sanded and dyed with russet amber dye and finished with a low gloss tung oil finish. The last two pics are what I call an 18th century dead bolt. The locking mechanism is engaged by turning the knob to the right. Just turn the knob to the left to open door.

Beautiful. Glad to see somebody else enjoys making primitive furniture. I love the knob.

Very beautiful. Like the vintage or antique look of it. The locking mechanism is cool too. Great work!
