Design ideas for cabinet with walnut burl doors

book-matched walnut burl

General design of Asian-inspired cabinet with walnut burl doors
roughly 44.5" h by 28"w by 17"d

Chinese round-corner cabinets come with many variations of the shapes of the leg besides round. I'm choosing to use a hard-edged multi-faceted leg shape, and will carry that motif through to the cross-pieces, top and door frames.

View looking down through doors just above lower pivot. The angular shape of the outer legs is clear,
as is the angular planes of the front of the door frames. As is traditional, there will be a central
post that gets inset to the casement and then locks the doors. The central post will be removable.
Looking closely on the right side, the reach of the hinge is drawn. The hinges will need to be custom-made.
