Made from bubinga and walnut, this was my first moderate-sized case piece with a dovetailed case. It is about 60″ tall x 24″ wide, x 12″ deep. Dovetailed drawers, hand carved pulls, brass hinges and frame and panel doors added to the complexity of this challenging build. I have used this to inspire another piece of a similar style for a bathroom cabinet.
The case and frames are made from bubinga, the top, bottom, door panels and shelves are walnut. It measures a little over 24″ tall, 8″ deep and 18″ wide. The smaller parts on the door were a definite challenge and reminded me that smaller doesn’t always mean faster for a project. I figured that the downstairs bathroom is probably one of the most commonly used rooms in the house. It deserved a hand-made piece. I’ll probably do a floor cabinet as well for this room sometime in the future.
