7 years in the making. Cutting the tree, letting it sit while the horses chewed on it for a few years, milling, air drying, kiln drying, resawing, planing, etc. Mortise and tenon and dovetail work with book match door panel. Hinges are off for finishing. Just getting to the point where I am able to steal a few hours here and there to work in the shop. Starting to get a good inventory of spalted woods from the here in the Adirondacks and I thought I would make something.

-- Usually my shop looks like who-dunnit-and-run, but sometimes it looks nice.

This is a wonderful Shaker wall cabinet and I love the wood that was used.

The matches are so nice, the door, the rails, really really nice.

Good work.

You’ll have to write more, or maybe a video of how the horses chewing helped. That concept is new to me. :-) Buy hey, I’ll try anything if it results in cabinets like this one.

Great job. Your spalted wood has a great look.

I made a shaker style TV cabinet from book-matched East Texas pecan a few years ago. The door panels were made from Colorado book-matched beetle kill pine. The beetle kill had some spalting characteristics as it had color striations and worm holes. It provided a nice contrast to the pecan and was fun to work with.

Thanks for sharing.

Have not had a lot of time for projects here at the farm but I have started a website https://www.singingtoadfarm.com/ where I have begun to add some of my spalted lumber for sale. If you’re in the Adirondack region, stop by and have a look.
