I was asked to build some white cabinets around a pair of stained glass panels. This is what I came up with.

The cabinets are about 20”x35”x8” deep. The case is 3/4” Maple ply with poplar trim and a 1/4” ply back. The doors are mortise and tenoned Birch. They hang using a french cleat.

I tried to add some imperfections to the cabinets to hopefully make them look older to match the glass. And to finish everything off the wife came home with the perfect knobs to match the lead in the glass.

Hopefully the recipient likes the results.

These are beautiful cabinets. I would love to learn how to do stained glass doors. Congratulations.
