This is a cherry jelly cupboard I made after watching a New Yankee episode. Instead of making punched tins for a pie safe, I made the raised panels for a jelly cupboard.

The wild cherry all came out of a fence row, with the help of a portable sawmill.

The dovetails I did with a router and jig. After all the setup I did for that. I think I’ll stick with hand cut dovetails from now on.

Somehow, it has already filled itself with Tupperware…

You did a beautiful job on this. I am impressed…from fence row to a room in the house.

A really nice piece.

Nice work, beautiful piece of furniture.
I agree with you on the dovetails, I prefer hand cut too.
What finish did you use? I think I see sap wood in the cherry, did you stain or dye it at all?
Thanks for showing.
