Small Oak Cabinet made from QS White Oak scraps found in the shop with some Walnut Bling!
About 12”h x 8”w and 3”d, finished with a light Shellac from L.V.
Brass knife hinges are shop made in the Krenov fashion, guess the entire Cabinet is in Krenov style,
as I used a Kernov coopering plane to make the door.

Your keys will be hinging in style. James Krenov would be proud of you. Thanks for sharing.

Fine work Andre. Love the dovetails. AND the curved top. Very tasteful as is par for the course in your projects.

Curve in the top and face are nice detail, great piece!

Looks great. I’ve wanted to make something with a curved door for a while. Need to make the plane first.

Andre – in which book does Krenov write about making knife hinges?

- JADobson

Actually not sure where the keys to the safe are, digital lock and built into basement wall!

The hinges I made were from my time at Inside Passage, really very simple to make but as with most things Krenov some little tricks are critical. In The fine Art of Cabinetmaking, on page 184 – 185 he dicusses his knife hinges and that he has them made for him but his apprentice who started Inside Passage makes his own and of course taught us well. The door latch is also discussed in that chapter.
In The Impractical Cabinetmaker he also talks about knife hinges on pages 28 -32.

Hey if you are ever in the area drop by can show you. Maybe even show you the Krenov Coopering plane that caused alot of grieve when it was not broken in.

A classic Andre! Nice use of the scraps 8^)

The Krenov style works well with a piece this size (even a place to store a spare ice scraper).

Such a lovely wooden storage cabinet! I reckon that this would be great to make as a mail box if you etch a slot in the front for the postman to pop the letters in!

I love seeing how scraps get to shine and be transformed into something useful. Usually what I do with mine is also to turn them into storage. You can never turn down that extra space you could fully utilize later on anywhere around the house.
