Stepback Cupboard

I made a stepback cupboard out of pine. I finished it with milk paint – barn red on the outside, mustard on the inside.

I used Glenn Huey’s plans for the Diminutive Dish Cupboard in “Building 18th-Century American Furniture” to guide the project, but I made a lot of changes. The most apparent is that I didn’t build a glass door for the top.

This was my first time making mouldings by hand. It was also my first time making frame and panel doors. First time making a tongue and groove back as well. So, it was a good skill-building project.

Below are a few in progress photos. It didn’t have mouldings or the back yet.

  1. I came across your blog while looking up images of shaker benches and ended up perusing your other posts. Just wanted to say your projects and pictures are both great.
