I just finished my version of a chimney cupboard this morning. Its not Shaker style and not quite Arts and Crafts…it’s my style. This is one of the first pieces that I designed myself and I feel that it worked out handsomely.
Its built of quartersawn white oak throughout with walnut inlays on the sides and a small walnut inlay on the center rail on the front. The piece was finished with a red mahogany base stain, a wash coat of garnet shellac, a dark walnut glaze and a finish coat of garnet shellac. The piece was finally rubbed out with steelwool and wax.
The dimensions of the cupboard are 78” tall, 20” wide and 12” deep.
It was definitely a lot of fun to build this and my wife (the intended recipient) LOVES it. So we’ll score this one a win.
Thanks for looking!
