Wall Cabinet



Made by Don Kondra

According to Don Kondra, “Every full-time woodworker needs to take some time off to make something for themselves,” so that’s exactly what he did. After a large commission, Don locked the doors, turned off the phone, cranked the tunes and built a wall cabinet for some of his photography needs. The bookmatched curly western maple door and gable panels provide the focal point, and cherry makes up the remainder of the frame. Don’s main goal – one that he had to repeat to himself over and over again – was to “Keep It Simple Stupid.” Still not completely satisfied with how the base and top mouldings turned out, he mentions, “Since they are removable I may at some point change them.” I don’t know, Don … they look pretty good to me!
