I now have a slide scanner which allows me to go back in my past to the days before digital and share some of my early work. When I completed the cherry china cabinet shown below, I considered it my "masters thesis" in wood. It had hand-cut dovetailed drawers, tenons that fit in tapered mortises, expanded and locked in place with walnut wedges, floating panels throughout (even at rear), carved cornice and base moldings and turn latches. Inside are solid cherry shelves on adjustable supports for housing china and glassware. It was completed in 1982.
