This is the third in (apparently) a continuing series. See the others (Thirty-Two and Thirty-Three) in my projects.
The theme is a wall cabinet that simulates a chest of drawers, but the drawer fronts are actually the door. In this case I appear to have a case of box joint mania, but I like the effect as well as the contrasting woods and disproportionate tall, narrow look.
Like the others, this one is primarily a media storage cabinet.
Made using maple, walnut, cherry, red oak, and rift white oak from scraps and pallets.
9” wide, 8” deep, 44” high

I like the contrasting woods also. Looks like it’d be a gr8 CD/DVD cabinet

I noticed that you used a division of eleven on #34 ,and a division of nine on # 33 . These are
classical divisions in Japanese Shoji screens . It fits the eye so well as far as proportion is concerned .
Equal divisions are not as interesting to me ,though they may be to others . I like the fact that one
has to ‘explore ’ to find out it’s nature … it opens . It invites one to use their tactile sense
of exploration without the clue ( handles ) to guide . The joinery is exceptional of course . It holds a question
and the surprise of discovery . It’s fun furniture ! Great design .

Roger: Thanks for your comments.

Moment: Thank you for your keen observations. I agree with you about equal divisions – they have a tendency
to be boring. Your comments will help guide me as I start thinking about Thirty Five.

Moment said it eloquently, thoroughly and wisely. This is gallery quality in every way.
