Project Information

I first saw this cupboard in Thos. Moser's How to Build Shaker Furniture. At my current skill level, I need more detailed instructions than given in the book. I found and used these plans provided by Christopher Schwarz of Woodworking Magazine. The only (intentional) modification that I made was to add the pins to the joints in the door.

This is made from cherry and finished with BLO and carnuba wax. The last photo shows the cupboard temporarily hanging in the house. I am going to make a peg board to complete the job.

Very nice design and execution. I really like the bookmatched door panel. It sets off the piece.

Hey Chuck
A real winner, is the door book matched solid wood or veneer?

Thanks for all the comments.
Jim - The door panel is solid wood. Parts of the cabinet are 3/4", which I milled from 4/4 rough. Other parts, including the door panel, are 1/2". For these parts, I started with 5/4 and resawed to get the final thickness.

Great looking project, particularly the bookmatch. Looks like it will go well in the house, too.

Chuck, the cabinet is great. When I first saw the picture I thought that it was my cabinet. I did the exact same Mosher cabinet about twenty years ago. It has been on several walls in several houses and now resides in a place of honor in my shop. It has always been one of my favorites, I hope this will be one of yours. Keep up the good work. Jim

That's really nice. I'm thinking of doing something like this as an entry into frame-and-panel construction (the door). Great looking bookmatch!
