Making a ‘Mulberry’ Corner Cabinet – Part Fourteen

All the polishing, ageing and distressing processes are finished and after re-hanging the doors and waxing the whole piece, it dawned on me that the cabinet is finally complete. Actually, the interior has to be toned down a little, but as unsettled weather is forecast for the next four days, and I had the assistance at hand, the cabinet was moved indoors within sight of its final resting place.

The completed ‘Mulberry’ corner cabinet.

The pull-out slide.

The upper doors and cornice.

Glazing bars.

The lower doors.

Brass escutcheons and new key.

Some bruscum and molluscum.

    Outstanding. It’s got a really different, intriguing look with the grain configured that way. Excellent work. You should be proud of how it came out.

    WOW! WOW! WOW! That is extremely impressive. Well done. That grain looks gorgeous. Quite inspirational.

    Thanks for the detailed writeup too. It’s great to see a piece like this come together from some ordinary looking timber into this beauty.
