18th Century PA Corner Cabinet – Viewer Project

Added on April 30, 2009

This project was submitted by Chet who writes:

“This is an 18th Century Pennsylvania Hanging Corner Cabinet. The design was created by Lonnie Bird (well know cabinetmaker and educator from East Tennessee) and is an amalgam of design elements from 18th Century Pennsylvania furniture and hanging corner cabinets more popular in Colonial Virginia. The wood is Cherry and it is finished with a “Simple Varnish Finish”. Yep, I bought the DVD. Actually, I had been using this finish technique prior to buying the DVD based on an article I read from David Marks – sound familiar, :) Anyway, I still found the DVD quite valuable and I have viewed it multiple times. To get the cabinet to the color I wanted, I put it on a rolling cart and took it out for a sun tan several times. So technically, I guess the finish is sunshine and wiping varnish.”

“The hardware (surface mounted H hinges and escutcheon) are period accurate and were purchased from Horton Brasses. The secondary wood is poplar and the back is a traditional ship lap design made from random width pieces.”
