Wall Cabinet

Wall Cabinet with Interior and Exterior Drawers.. It has developed a beautiful deep, aged cherry color. The cherry contrasts well with the Spalted Maple door panel and recessed pulls. Hung using French cleat. Dovetailed drawers with inset pulls to create a low profile for doors. Although small, it features many of the techniques and skills I use in my furniture making. Designed to display art or decorative objects. The cabinet sides are also dovetailed to the top and bottom.

Love the design with exterior and interior drawers. The handles are cool also. Nice build.

That is striking Norman. Well done!

Beautiful way to showcase that spalted maple. Beautiful cabinet!
Very nice,  I like the contrasting colors

Thanks all! I like that cherry develops a darker color as it ages... enhancing the contrast to the spalted maple panel. When I began 30 yrs. ago I did not take the color change of woods into account when making pieces. Often, an early contrast would develop into a blended colors as one wood darkened and the other sometimes became lighter. Lesson learnt. Non-yellowing finishes are also key to keep the spalted maple tone original in color.

Really nice Norman, like the drawer pulls, not seen them like that before.
That's a real nice cabinet!

Good looking cabinet. "Krenovian" is the word that comes to my mind - lovely. Good overall ballance and nice little deails + superb grain selection.
Out of quriosity: What are the thoughts behind having 2 drawers in the front and 4 more behind the door?

The number and location of drawers is pure design. I also like to challenge myself and add unique elements to each furniture piece I create. I had always enclosed the drawers behind cabinet doors, so wanted to try something different. Thanks for asking!

Makes sense, thanks. Thought perhaps it had to do with the items you envisioned being stored in the drawers or someting.
Sharing details like these are the exact reason how we learn from each other and all grow as designers and woodworkers
