Project Information

We have some unsightly electronics and outlets that The Customer wanted concealed. This wall cabinet emerged as the approved solution.

Cherry case work with a single shelf, assembled with proud joinery.

The front panel is Cherry with glueless kumiko made from Port Orford cedar. Behind it is some washi with embedded plant material that I judged to be harmonious with the wood colors. I also happened to have a piece in exactly the right size left over from another project.

The front panel will be opened almost never, and so I did not bother with hinges and the like. Instead, I cut grooves into the top and bottom of the case and rabbets on the front panel. The panel can just be removed by lifting up and tilting out the bottom, just like a sliding door.

Wall hung with a French cleat. Odie's oil finish.

The shelf does not extend to the full depth of the case, allowing space for wires to pass between levels. I also hid some openings in the back dovetails for wires to emerge. You can see one where the HomePod mini is. Another can be seen where the fiber optic cable goes to the nearby television.

This required some fun calculations so that the tenons appear spaced evenly on the outside even though they are asymmetrically distributed along the shelf itself.

Very nice work. I like the approach with the front, and I love what you did with the pins being proud. It might be an optical illusion but it seems like the narrow part of the pins do not stick out as far as the wider part. If that is not an optical illusion I really like the idea, and may borrow that and even make it more pronounced.

Optical illusion but worth trying!
