Large Shaker Chimney Cabinet

author-gravatar harshdoug Jun 04, 2018

This large chimney cupboard is made from pine from the big orange box store. This is based on a 2013 article by Bob Rozaieski in Popular Woodworking Magazine. It's painted with milk paint Barn Red over Pitch Black with shellac and wax finish. It's almost too nice to live in my basement workshop. This is a mostly hand tool project with the exception of initial dimensioning. Check out my other work on my Instagram page at doug.h.h

Very, very cool!!!!  Love the build and the paint job.  I also like how you "framed" the panel with the HL hinges.  Nice touch!!!!
