This was my first big cabinet build. I modeled this after plans of a similar one done by Chris Schwarz for Poplar Woodworking. I made it for my wife as a Xmas present – she doesn’t like it so it resides in my den, aka the boneyard.
I wasn’t into hand tool building then and this was all done by machines but there were some firsts for me. This was my first big cabinet, my first tombstone door, my first use of cock beading, and my first rabbeted drawer joint.
The carcass is birch plywood and the shelf too. I used 1/2” ship lapped poplar for the back. And with the exception of the sides/back of the drawer, everything else is poplar. I also made all the moldings with my router table and tablesaw.
The glass is held in place with glaziers points and glazing compound, which matches the poplar pretty good.
I learned a lot making this cabinet.
