Apothecary Cabinet

May 13th, 2011 by

This stunning piece showcases some beautiful stock, wonderful details, and spot-on hardware selection.

I have attached pictures of  an apothecary cabinet I just completed.  The primary wood is bubinga.  The internal wood is baltic birch.  Drawer face fronts are 2″ x 3 5/8″.  The Chinese characters are handcarved into the face fronts and filled with Rockler’s wonder wood filler.  Finish is danish oil and General Finishes satin poly blend. The bottom cabinet is lined with Chinese calligraphy.

    That piece is magnificent! To the artisan, accolades.

  3. This is nothing short of beautiful. I work with bubinga and love the results. When I look at this piece, I see many hours of loving work but I also see one really fancy nail and screw storage bin. Great looking piece, a real work of art.

    This is much better looking than the one that we bought while in the orient. Ours does not have near the quality nor eye appeal.
