Woodworker: Neil KnechtThis Greene-and-Greene-inspired piece may look like a freestanding cabinet, but it’s actually a built-in. Knecht needed the depth to store stereo components, so he recessed the back of the case 8 in. into the wall. He reconfigured a closet on the other side of the wall to allow extra room for the built-in portion and access to the electronics. The mahogany cabinet is 21 in. deep by 28 in. wide by 44 in. tall and is finished with an oil-based stain, garnet shellac, and wax.
