Krenov Style Wall Cabinet
I made this cabinet a short while ago using a piece of wonderfully figured ash for the door and quartered olive ash for the carcass (the shot above has come out rather pale). The front is gently curved with a corresponding concave curve on the inside, all hand planed. Even though the cabinet is only small (21" x 8" x 5") the door took a lot of effort.
The carcass is dovetailed and I carved a tiny scallop to open the door.
The shelves followed the same curve on their front and were double chamfered to add to the effect of lightness.
The tiny knife hinges were from Sanderson Hardware and are superbly made and small enough to suit the scale of the piece.
