Default raised door panels, ha ha ha

Well, in hope that the whole sideboard will be finished this month, I am giving you a taste of my experiments with cypress, and this what I managed to make by joining free-edge slices to make the doors of the cabinet. It proved a tremendous effort and time waste to try make this wood obey and not warp in all directions, but the result does not look too bad in my eyes. The slices were joined with biscuits, and the frame around them, with my traditional - by now - dowel technique.

In the picture you see it upside-down, as I start varnishing the base first.

Comments and questions welcome

Greetings to all

agreed..
looks good to my eyes too.....
I like it a lot... and I like cypress a lot too...
so when are you gonna graduate to splines.....

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Really nice looking piece, especially considering the material. I agree with Stick about the splines. Very strong, and might help keep it from warping. You do some nice work with some not so nice materials. Thanks for posting it.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Dimitri, what an idea, live edge panels. Never would have even conceived of that. It is quite rustic, and could be done with any wood.
Great idea, and good job.

I've always heard that cypress is difficult to work with too but you do a very good job of taming it.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I would not have thought about that either Herb.

Dimitri you did a great job and I love your doors with the live edge.

I like that you are prepared to do things your way and be different. The overall effect is very fine ; thanks for posting.

Glad to see you posting, Dimitri. Haven't seen much from you lately.

Great job. I really like the live edge effect. I love non-traditional things and you have done a fantastic job of making it an interesting, visual pleasing piece.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
