Nakashima Style Wall Cabinet

The new edition of Furniture and Cabinet Making has an article by me on the making of a Nakashima style wall cabinet using some wonderful English Walnut. I'm getting good publicity this month!

The article outlines the making along with a detailed plan and dimensions. Anyone wishing a free copy (of the article) can contact the editor Derek Jones via e mail  and he will gladly forward a PDF.

There were some pretty meaty through dovetails on the corners but everything went together well.

Coming next month is an article on saw guides including a review of my magnetic dovetail guide. The picture below shows the guide being used in an unconventional manor and with a narrow bladed English saw instead of a wider bladed Japanese saw. I'll be intrigued to see what they think, but I'm also slightly worried!!


  1. Lovely cabinet David.

    I got the pdf of the article from Derek yesterday and I'm looking forward to having a go at it soon.

    1. Hi, That's good he's very helpful. I'd love to see a picture when it's finished. All the best, David.
