This was a cabinet i made for a customer of mine. The magazine, American Woodworker liked it and asked me to do and article on it. So i made another one. It’s made of cherry and has an unique locking handle on it.
If you are intersted in learning more it’s featured in this months American Woodworker Magazine 164.
The inset doors on it can sometimes be tricky to fit. But i have a methond that makes it easy. And when you’ll see it, you’ll never be intimidated by getting consistant gaps all the way around ever again.
I’ve made a video how to fit inset doors and i’ll post it here later this week. If you’d like to see the video now you can visit my channel at youtube.

Thanks JC! It’s funny when the customer asked to design and make it, i wasn’t really excited. But once it was built. I really grew to enjoy the charm of this simple cabinet. So when the magazine asked to make another one, i was thrilled.

Thanks for the “congrasts” everybody. And thanks for watching the videos. 5 years ago when i started doing video people didn’t get my style. I received more hate than you could possibly imagine. But that’s all changed now. It’s opened doors to so many connections and opportunities. Sticking with it really has had pay offs. So thank you everyone i truly appreciate it.
