First sketch for cabinet modeled on
Chinese round-corner cabinet design

This piece is being built around its doors! I took the unused portion of the walnut burl from the sideboard in Biedermeier style and 4-way book-matched it, then veneered to 1/2" Baltic birch plywood. The result is just the right size for a dramatic cabinet. While there is a hole in the veneer, this will be filled with offpieces I chose the wonderful subtle design of the round-corner cabinet, made in China for over 400 years. However this will be a modern version, using today's techniques. I hope the result will be pleasing for years to come.
