This hanging wall cabinet is based on the cabinet in Mike Pekovich’s book The How and Why of Woodworking.

I also followed along with Mike Pekovich’s video series on Fine Woodworking’s website.

The cabinet was made for my daughter to hold her collection of David’s Teas. It will hold 12 cans of tea. Additionally, the drawer at the bottom, with a removable walnut tray holds, tea bag packets.

The cabinet is about 23” tall x 14” wide x 5” deep. It will hang on the wall with a French cleat which is attached to the back.

The basswood Kumiko insert in the door is a bordered AsaNoHa pattern.

I still need to add door and drawer pulls and will do that once the “stay at home” requirements are lifted and I can get out to the hardware store

The cabinet is finished inside and out with shellac..

Nice, I watched the video series. Was considering building this but really don’t have a place for it now.

Nice cabinet. The Kumiko inserts in what looks like an otherwise Shakerish cabinet brings a lot to the party.

Nice job.

Looks good.

Nicely done!
I’ve been contemplating this build in Cherry and this just pushes me more in that direction.
