    A China Cabinet

    Or maybe it would be more correct to say a cabinet made in China? Amazing craftsmanship in the original. I doubt I'd have the patience to build those doors.



    Based on one made about 1840 in Shanghai. The original has some sort of metal screen behind the wood grid work.



    And a close up of the doors.

    Yah, that grill would be a lot of work, but it would be beautiful when done. The pattern is very pleasing to look at.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    I love these - I've watched several builds of chinese style screens and doors, the number of pieces and the prescion of the joinery is amazing.

    Looks like a tool cabinet for a school. The doors just hold a bunch of squares.

    In case you're interested, I made a blog post and video showing how I drew the latticework on this cabinet.
