Christian Becksvoort’s Shaker tinware cupboard breaks all the rules of proportion. Because of its size, it’s useful all over the house, but it doesn’t adhere to the 1.6 to 1 design rule. This one has five movable shelves, and the top and sides are rabbeted to receive the back and are dovetailed together. He explains how he built the carcase, face frame, and frames and panels, with a detailed project plan showing all its parts. A side article explains how he hangs flush cabinet doors, and he adds to that with information on door bumpers, knobs, and spinners.
