no previous part Part 1 of Krenov Cabinet series Part 2: Dry fit of base »

Krenov style cabinet based off of dimensions in Fine woodworking issue no. 208. I am using both Philippine Mahogany and either elm burl or something exotic for the door fronts. I enjoy the curve of the se legs, they almost look like hooves on a camel. All the mahogany will be stained to appear darker and like its more expensive counterparts.

Nice, I assume it was all done with a spoke shave, Krenov style? Straight grain on all 4 sides?
In your travels perhaps try to go south along the coast to Roberts Creek BC, there is a place called Inside Passage that will do a lot to inspire any Krenov interests.
