I wanted an Japanese themed Tea/Sake Cabinet I could give as a gift. I was inspired by a piece I saw from Mike Pekovich and designed it around a 1” x 6” x 9’ QSRO I found at the Orange Borg. I added the interior Shelf/Drawers.
All hand-cut Dovetails. Again, I incorporated some of my “rescued from the woodpile” stash with some Spalted Curly Maple for the interior drawer fronts.

The front panel is a first for me, Kumiko, a fun and addicting process, most definitely will be incorporating this into more upcoming projects.

Back panels is some left over 1/4” white Cedar, left unfinished.
It measures 14”w x 24”h, a light mission brown dye stain, BLO and hand rubbed wax finish.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks Art, Mike and Kyle!
Pekovich does makes some beautiful cabinets, the way he leaves Dovetails and Tenons proud really adds
another depth to his work, another first for me.

Beautiful! I’m thinking of some kumiko work, someday soon. Nice cabinet, and that figure is just great. Finding it at a BORG as opposed to a wood boutique makes the cost lower, yes?
