This cabinet was my first project at New England School of Architectural Woodworking's Cabinetmaking Career Training program in 2010. It combines all the cabinetmaking techniques needed to create a full kitchen's worth of cabinets: drafting, selecting wood, milling, joinery, veneering, finishing.
The sides are bookmatched veneer panels, and the top is a checkerboard veneer. The drawer is dovetailed and has half-roundovered top edges, and the pull is from a vintage Hamilton print case. The door has raised-edge panels, and opens to a compartment with an adjustable shelf. Placement of the wood was carefully selected: note the drawer front grain surrounding the handle.
I took my graduation photos extremely seriously.
