This is a plan from Glen Huey I modified the plan a bit but the size was exactly what the client wanted made from black eastern walnut they came out just like the client wanted the plan had molding over the dovetails and the client did not want the dovetails covered I agreed that the simpler look was better. The panels were raised on the table saw hinge placement was per the plan and done the way the customer wanted They will be mounted to the wall using a french cleat. The pair of these took about 25 hours to make including the finishing.

The finish was BLO 2 coats and then 5 coats of Ruby Shellac We applied the BLO and then let them dry for 48 hours then we sprayed the finish using the new T series HVLP gun from FUJI The customer was very pleased with the look I will defiantly use the Ruby Shellac on walnut again it looks very rich and made the grain pop. I do hope you like the design It is found in the book on 18th century furniture from Glen Huey
