American Cherry Cabinet

David (Tue PM TG) – 

I bought the American Cherry planks and the Hard Maple for the drawer sides in April 2012 and spent the first 6 weeks or so getting the design and drawings all worked out.  34 dovetailed corners and about 60 tenons and some assorted trenches later I’m glad its finally done – though I’m still not exactly sure what you’d call it – a cabinet with drawers?

I did spend a whole term making the moulding on top, which went through a dozen mock ups and prototypes.  The finish is Danish Oil – around 8 or 9 coats.  No individual part was especially difficult just about 3-4 years longer than I’d first anticipated!
