Project Information

I started this corner cabinet maybe three years ago and finally just got all of the divided lights and glass shelves installed. Its loosely based off of a cabinet I saw on The Woodwrights' Shop, which is in turn based off of a classic cabinet located in the metropolitan museum of art.

The upper carcass is mitered pine boards with a cherry face frame that is rabbeted to accept the panels. The door is a true divided light door made by hand with moulding planes. It was my first attempt at any sort of sash work, not to mention by hand, but I'm relatively happy with how it turned out. Definitely learned a lot of lessons in careful layout and stock prep.

The bottom carcass is made similarly to the upper, however with mitered plywood panels making up the back. The doors are raised panels cut on the table saw using the coving method to produce the profile. The cornice moulding is was also cut on the table saw using the same method and cleaned up with planes and scrapers.

Overall I love the way it turned out. This was a pretty challenging project with a lot of small detail work that needed paying attention to. There is probably a good 70 hours put into this, however a big portion of it was done by hand. Thanks for looking!

Wally - what a beautiful cabinet. It looks perfect in its spot. Really like the pine / cherry combination. Great job on the doors - all the more impressive with hand tools

I love the proportions of this cabinet. The cherry and finish really look beautiful. I can see you have a lot of work in it but the result really shines.

Magnificent! I agree about the lower cabinet sap wood. Really adds to the overall look of the piece.
