Customer Project, Nice Little Tea Cabinet.


Jason from Maryland sent me these pictures of a petite tea cabinet made recently as a wedding present. It measure 20" tall x 4 3/4" deep and 9 3/4" wide.


The carcass is cherry with a basswood rear panel and white oak shelves.
Notice how he has left the case dovetails slightly proud, a nice touch.


This was Jason's first time making both the carcass dovetails as well as the half binds for the drawer and he done a great job! Anyone for tea?

    1. They look more like herbal teas to me!

    2. Thanks, Matt.

      David- yes, herbal, with one black tea thrown in, too.

  3. Lovely piece with nice details for woodworkers to admire.

    Perhaps an idea for a future, quick video, David...how to mark your work to produce slightly proud dovetails. I've done it before on a cabinet I made with success but there was initial trepidation on my part as I was wondering if I was marking each board correctly.

    Happy Holidays to you and yours, David.
