not a box

My primary focus is making boxes. However, my wife mentioned that she wanted a corner cabinet for the dining room. Glad to make it.

I actually started it in late August but it got delayed since our son was coming to visit from California and I also had to create a bit of inventory for several upcoming shows we had scheduled.. After our show this past weekend I finished it up…still have 6 more shows between now and mid-December and I just could not let it set any longer…

This is made from some good old Louisiana Sinker Cypress…. 62” tall and about 30” wide.

Ok – It’s not a box but it’s still a fine specimen of your artistic talent

I love the corner cabinet, Greg. I love working with cypress, but I can’t say that I have worked with sinker cypress before.

Also, were you in Lafayette, LA for the Festival Acadians last weekend? I looked for you in the booths.

Greg I’m sure she is a happy camper! It’s a 5 sided big box structure? LOL!

Very nice! I envy those who are in a position to exploit the availability of sinker wood. That pretty much doesn’t exist, here in California, unless you include sun-petrified wood.

Thanks guys… I have always enjoyed working with cypress. I still have a cypress paddle hanging on my shop wall that I made sometime around 1957. It was my first major project.
The sinker cypress for the cabinet came from really awesome boards I got a while back. Their grain and beauty put new growth cypress to shame….

Don…once you work with sinker it is addictive. I got this sinker in Lafayette from Hogan Architectural Hardwoods. If you haven’t been there you oughta go. A lot of fantastic woods and a great group of people also. We didn’t make it to Festival Acadiens…we were in Alabama at a show

Very nice “upright, doored, box” or a supreme wall cabinet, your call.

Nice work, love that wood, sunk or not.

Thanks for posting, and Congrats on your 3.

Thanks Ivan…the metal hinges and knob are some simple ones i found at the local hardware store. I couldn’t bring myself to use the regular cabinet hinges. I like a more rustic metal hinge
